Speaking about the success of the event, Akshat Rathee, MD and Co-Founder of NODWIN Gaming said,

NODWIN Gaming and Star Sports 2 took a huge leap of faith by broadcasting the BGMI Master Series on television. Our aim was to expand the esports audience and capitalise on the fact that esports has a huge potential to fulfil the entertainment fix of both gamers and non-gamers on primetime television. We’ve been able to achieve all of this and more with the BGMI Master Series, which was further validated by the response of non-esports brands. We started off the tournament with just two partners and now we have seven sponsors on board, which include Swiggy, Hyundai, Spotify, Wings and Gillette. The viewership on both linear and digital platforms has been phenomenal and we are excited to see the climax building up for the grand finale. We are naturally delighted and proud to be part of this great moment in time when the history of esports is being written! We’re looking forward to bringing Indian esports at par or even higher than other marquee international sports events across platforms.”

Day 3 of the BGMS Grand Finals will start at 8:30 PM today, where top teams like Team GodLike and Team SouL will be battling it out at the NODWIN Studio in Delhi. The tournament will continue till July 17, 2022.
