How did it happen?

Earlier this year in May, the Global Esports CEO & Founder Rushindra “Salbatic” Sinha stated that India would get a spot in the Preliminaries round in the Overwatch World Cup 2019. However, without a top 10 team title, the team Indian would not have their traveling expense covered.

That was a major obstacle for Esports players who did not find a sponsor to help with the expense involved. At this point, Global Esports has decided to make its presence. The organization negotiated with Blizzard to get India a major spot at the event. Also, they agreed to pay the bill for the whole squad to get there.

Since the announcement, multiple tests and trials have been held to determine the best Overwatch players in India for the event. The team India has fielded Salbatic as General Manager, Vasu “method” Chaturvedi as Team Coach and Ashwath “Ashr” Ravee as Community Lead. They would be responsible for running the whole project.
