BGMI Esports have announced their sponsors for the year 2022. Krafton has planned four official esports events this year. These events will be backed by two official sponsors.
Loco and iQOO will be the sponsors for all the events this year.
BGMI Esports Sponsors :
Loco, one of the top live streaming platforms in India, has partnered with Krafton. With this, all BGMI Esports tournaments will go live on Loco also.
Loco will be the ‘Powered By’ sponsor of these events.
In the past few months, BGMI viewership on Loco has grown a lot. Many esports events have gained millions of views on it. So Krafton will be able to gain a wider audience with Loco.
iQOO is a Chinese smartphone manufacturing company. Moreover, iQOO is famous for making phones specifically for gamers. It will be the ‘Title Sponsor’ for BGMI Esports for the second time.
Last year, iQOO was the only official sponsor for BGIS. The Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) was Krafton’s first tournament in India.

Krafton is ready to host the following events this year –
- BMPS Season 1

The overall prize pool of all these events is 6 Crore INR.
