Moinuddin Amdani secures a spot in the Finals of Esports World Championship

India to play next on November 6; Abhinav Tejan to compete in Tekkan7

Riding on dominating performances, Moinuddin Amdani sealed a spot in the Finals of 12th Esports World Championship and gave India a winning start at the regional qualifiers.

Competing online in the South Asia region, an experienced Amdani started off with thrashing 4-0 and 10-1 victory against Sri Lanka in the best-of-three league match while he went onto register 4-0 and 2-0 win over Nepal in the second game to set-up the final against Sri Lanka.

Extending his unbeaten run, the Mumbai-boy Amdani was even more dominant in the best-of-five final against Sri Lanka where he notched-up a convincing 3-0, 7-0 and 2-0 win to secure a spot in the Esports World Championship Finals which is scheduled to take place in Eliat, Israel.

“I’m very excited for the Finals. Despite some initial internet hiccups, I was able to focus on my strategy of defending deep and outscoring my opponents on counter attack which gave me success,” an elated Amdani said after the regional qualifiers.

After Amdani’s sensational show in PES 2021, Tekken7 player Abhinav Tejan (on November 6) and Omkar Urunkar-led Indian DOTA Team  will fight for the place in World Championship Finals on November 18 in their respective category. Five-member Team comprising Urunkar, Khaja Hussain, Amit Malwal, Omkar Gharat and Akshay Dhodi will compete in DOTA 2.

Owing to COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing World Championship is being played with a mix of online and offline competitions. The winners of online Regional Qualifiers from each of the regions will proceed to the World Championship Finals which is an offline tournament as per schedule event for now.

ESFI partners Alcis Sports and Artsmith.in continue its support as the performance wear partner and communication partner respectively for the prestigious World Championships.
