As we enter a fully-stacked 2024 esports roadmap by Skyesports, partnerships like these are a testament to the potential of our roadmap which not only extends to Indian gamers but also includes participation from international regions, including Australia and Europe.”

The Skyesports Grand Slam is set to happen in Pune from 14 to 16 March during the 6th India Gaming Show 2024, an international gaming, animation, and infotainment event by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). The tournament will feature four teams – one from India and Australia each, and two from Europe – engaging in intense esports action for the title of champions and a share of the $50,000 prize pool.
