ESL India Premiership 2020 is going to start today – June 1, 2020. This tournament is the longest-running esports league hosted by ESL India.

The 2020 version of the ESL would contain FIFA, CS:GO, PUBG Mobile and Clash of Clans. This is the first time PUBG Mobile was added to the tournament. Looks like the organizers have acknowledged the popularity of the game in India – and mobile games in general, as two other PC games were discarded.
