E-sports and mobile gaming platform Mobile Premier League has announced the launch of College Premier League (CPL), a college mobile gaming festival. At the festival, students can win scholarships and cash prizes with a total value of Rs 1 crore, competing both at individual level as well as at the institutional level. CPL is completely free for college students to participate in, and has no entry fee.
Over the duration of the College Premier League, which begins on November 27, students from across the country will contend for top honours across a wide range of mobile games such as World Cricket Championship, Chess, Pool and Rogue Heist. The games are selected based on popularity among students, as well as those that appeal to both regular and casual gamers.
Sai Srinivas, Co-founder and CEO, MPL, said, “Over the last few months, we have seen a tremendous boost in online gaming. Not just as a means of keeping audiences entertained, but also as a viable career option. The industry is growing at a fast pace with several options being created for players to go pro, supported by developers, marketing professionals, and more. Through the College Premier League, we hope to create awareness about these opportunities and their potential.”
Competing colleges will also be awarded points on the basis of their performance, which will see them through intra-college, regional, zonal, and national rounds. The finalists will get to live-stream their games along with influencers such as comedian Tanmay Bhat on MPL’s social media channels, potentially reaching an audience of over two million.
Through the College Premier League, MPL aims to identify and nurture budding e-sports talents in India. Having partnered with several independent as well as established game developers, MPL has since opened up a new revenue stream for them to monetise their skills.
The College Premier League is also a part of MPL’s growth programme to reach a cross-section of users, following their successful association with Indian and international professional sports leagues.
