"Tata Group has been supportive of multiple sports for centuries and now everything becoming ‘e’, it is the perfect time for the grand entry into e-sports.”

The tournament's engagement with Tata Motors will coincide with the recently launched Tata Tiago NRG. “We are extremely proud and excited that Tata Motors has partnered with us to promote Tiago NRG through a modern medium of e-sports. This is the first of many events we have planned for the massive e-sports enthusiasts’ community,” Naicker further said.
