Previously, the Chinese phone manufacturer already held a similar tournament in India last October when it launched the Oppo F9 Pro in the country.  Called “PUBG Mobile Campus Championship 2018”, this tournament was reportedly the biggest PUBG Mobile eSports competition held in India up to that point.  It featured a total prize pool of 50 lakhs and witnessed over 250,000 registrations from more than 1,000 colleges across the country.
