Leading global esports platform Challengermode has teamed up with NODWIN Gaming – one of the world’s leading esports companies based out of India. The partnership will see NODWIN Gaming use Challengermode’s esports tournament platform to run its esports events and tournaments in its key markets of South Asia and Africa.
NODWIN Gaming has engaged with over 20 million gamers across 120+ events in its markets, with teams competing for over 3 million USD in prizes. Starting from February 9, NODWIN will be hosting competitions on Challengermode across CSGO, Dota2, League of Legends, PUBG PC, FIFA, Apex legends and more, taking advantage of the Challengermode platform’s tools to fully automate the set-up and running of esports tournaments for esports organizers, teams and players.
The partnership will also aim to expand across platforms to include Mobile titles that are of particular interest for NODWIN Gaming and Challengermode. NODWIN Gaming will work with Challengermode actively to integrate its mobile-first approach to developing markets with the platform to build synergy for both parties.
These regular tournaments will give aspiring grassroots esports players the chance to compete in a professional setting and for real prize money with the aim of encouraging greater participation in South Asia’s vibrant esports scene among traditional gamers and under-represented demographics, such as women interested in esports. Esports hopefuls looking to level up their skills can use these tournaments as the first step in their path to becoming esports pros, as well as use Challengermode’s range of tools and coaches to improve their game.
Philip Hubner, CBDO at Challengermode said, “NODWIN Gaming has been at the forefront of the esports scene across a range of developing markets. Having worked with them previously on their esports activities in Africa, we are delighted to be expanding how we work together with this exclusive partnership for the next four years. This will allow NODWIN to use the Challengermode platform as the foundation of its esports events around the world. We are well aligned in seeing the business, entertainment and even educational opportunities of esports in the years to come and we see NODWIN Gaming as the perfect partner to advance our mission of binding the global esports ecosystem closer together.”
Gautam Virk, Co-founder and COO, NODWIN Gaming said, “Challengermode’s experience in hosting some of the biggest events in modern esports makes them an ideal partner for NODWIN to scale up our operations in South Asia and beyond. Their platform’s ability to automate the tournament experience allows us to focus on providing services and solutions to every kind of stakeholder under the broad umbrella of the esports industry. We are also pleased to be so well aligned with them. Moving forward we will be migrating our esports initiatives to the Challengermode’s platform and we look forward to working with their team closely on our many esports tournaments planned for 2022 and beyond.”
