Bharti Airtel has partnered with NODWIN to accelerate the growth of e-sports in India.

As part of this partnership, Airtel has launched Airtel India Esports Tour and introduced a national ranking and awarding system for Indian esports players which will take into account the players’ year-long performance across various tournaments to create a points table for all participants.

Airtel has said that the coverage will extend to NODWIN tournaments such as the India Premiership by NODWIN, Dreamhack India, The Northeast Cup, KO Fight Nights, and PAN Fest and will also cover NODWIN operated tournaments such as the PUBG Mobile Pro League in India.

As per Airtel, NODWIN would initially seed the e-sports tour but will aspire to be a platform where tournaments will carry equal significance, independent of the organiser.
