ESPL is likely the first eSports tournament scheduled to take on a national scale where players will compete to represent one of the eight cities. This list of cities includes Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Punjab, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Rajasthan.
Let’s check details about ESports Premier League (ESPL) including the registration, timeline, prize pool, and the sign-up process here.
The developers have set the total prize pool of ESPL 2021 at Rs 25 lakhs besides the obvious rights and trophy. After the preliminary registrations, the matches will start from June 16, with the conclusion date set for August 29.
How ESports Premier League 2021 works?
Around 9 matches will be played on a daily basis throughout the first season of the tournament, which will follow a league-based ranking system instead of a knockout system. The League will be progressing through a series of consecutive stages as well.
These include 45 qualifiers’ matches with 540 teams, 18 quarter-final matches with 90 teams, and 16 semi-final matches with 24 teams. The format of ESPL 2021 will revolve around “Versus”, “Best of 5”, and “Best of 8” in order to select the top-performing teams.
There’s also going to be an IPL-like auction for the top 12 ‘invited teams’ where franchise/state owners will participate in a virtual-wallet-based auction. Each owner will have the option of buying/owning two teams, and these teams will go on to represent their respective state and battle against the underdog teams.
