SPS New State Mobile Open India Challenger Stage: Complete Details

ESL India in collaboration with NODWIN Gaming is organizing this New State Mobile tournament in India, which is the biggest in terms of the total prize pool (INR 1,00,00,000) and the size of the competition.

The event kicked off as a grassroots-level tournament but has transitioned into a top-tier competition, building up the excitement through some high octane action.

A total of 32 teams will be competing as part of the Challenger Stage, 16 directly invited teams and 16 that have qualified through the Open Qualifier.

Only the top 24 teams will be moving ahead to the next stage of the tournament, Challenger Finals, which is set to take place in an offline setup.

The Challenger Stage will be taking place from  5th to 15th January, but no particular information about the schedule has been revealed by the tournament organizer.

This will be updated as soon as ESL India or NODWIN Gaming make the information public knowledge.

Though there is no official statement on what format would be followed for this stage of the tournament. According to past examples, the 32 teams will likely be divided into four groups of eight teams each.

This could be followed by a round-robin format where each group plays against the other across a set number of days and the top 24 teams on the leaderboard make it through to the next stage.

The tournament carries an overall total prize pool of INR 1,00,00,000 which roughly translates to about $120,927 USD.

However, this only comes into effect from the next stage onwards. The SPS New State Mobile Open India Challenger Finals shall distribute the prize pool between the top 24 teams on the basis of their final placement.
