Skyesports has created a very solid player base in 2021. The Indian company is one of the most renowned eSports organizers in its home country as well as in Southeast Asia by now. With a total of 280,000 active users, the company has a very good player base to fall back on, which at the same time makes it possible to raise the prize money for the upcoming events.

According to our experience, Skyesports does not specialize in one eSports discipline, but hosts tournaments for different games, specifically:

The official statement from Skyesports about the roadmap
Shiva Nandy, CEO of Skyesports has taken the release of the roadmap as an opportunity to look a little ahead.
“We couldn’t be more excited to share the roadmap for 2022 as we look forward to another remarkable year for Skyesports. The stakes will be significantly higher as prize pools are increased across the board and returns to LAN events. We will also be setting our foot in more regions as Skyesports continues to set a benchmark for the eSports industry,” Nandy said in the official Skyesports statement.
The expansion was launched in 2021
You don’t have to be an eSports prophet to believe that the road to success from the organizer will continue in the coming months. It is clear that 2022 will be Skyesports’ record year. The company’s user numbers and, consequently, its revenue figures will increase. It is expected that the company will no longer limit itself to India and Southeast Asia, but will expand on an even larger scale.
The foundation for further business expansion was already laid in the previous year. In August 2021, digital entertainment and technology company JetSynthesys acquired 65 percent of the eSports organizer. The acquisition had been hinted at in the various financing rounds. Skyesports was looking for new investors and has been working strategically with JetSynthesys for some time.
