Cologne/New York/San Diego — ESL Gaming, part of ESL FACEIT Group, and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. today announced more details about the live regional Snapdragon® Mobile Challenge finals for Brawl Stars and Clash of Clans. With over 500,000 players participating in the Snapdragon Pro Series so far, the finals are gearing up for a spectacular showdown.
- Asia-Pacific: First up is the Asia-Pacific Brawl Stars Finals, taking place on July 30. The four best teams from the regional Challenge Season will gather at the Kuala Lumpur Battle Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to play in front of a live audience. They will make their way through the double-elimination bracket in an attempt to be the first-ever team to claim a regional Snapdragon Mobile Challenge title.
- Cross-Regional: From August 4-7, Clash of Clans fans have a long weekend full of action to look forward to as the greatest teams from North America (NA); from Europe, Middle East and North Africa (EUR/MENA); and India will meet at ESL Gaming’s production studios in Katowice, Poland. With a total prize pool of more than $150,000 and three regional titles up for grabs, these teams will battle it out in front of their fans. After the regional finals have been concluded, the top teams from each region will have the opportunity to face each other once more for a Golden Ticket granting a spot in Supercell’s World Championship.
- EUR/MENA: Continuing the action into summer, August 27-28, the four best Brawl Stars teams from the EUR/MENA regions will compete at what is to be one of the biggest Brawl Stars tournaments ever, as they enter the stage live at gamescom 2022 in Cologne, Germany.
