Lot of endemic brands like HyperX, Dell, RedBull have been supporting Indian esports from its early days but there are hardly any consumer / life-style brands engaged with Indian esports ecosystem.

Yuvin Esports brings one such leading brand, Tata Motors to Indian esports – the name which inspires Trust. For centuries Tatas have adopted sports as an innovative development theme to generate positive socio-economic change in India, be it Football, Hockey, Polo, Cricket and many more.
