The event represents a landmark moment for The Esports Club in the subcontinent. With an increasing number of international opportunities for South Asian players through Ubisoft's Esports events including the Rainbow Six® Siege World Cup in 2021, the WD Black TEC Pro League provides an ideal opportunity and competitive regional platform for teams to compete and hone their skills as they prepare for the international stage.
There has been a big surge in Rainbow Six Siege's popularity since it was included as a region in the Global Esports Program. Regional tournaments like these are a great way to introduce more and more aspiring gamers in India to the e-sports scenes.
