India Today Gaming ESPL Season Two has been postponed indefinitely following the ban order imposed by Indian government on Krafton’s flagship game Battlegrounds Mobile India. The organizers were planning to hold a LAN final from 1st August but this plan has changed indefintely.

Esports Premier League (ESPL) is one of the premier esports leagues in India. Its second season shifted from Free Fire to BGMI and two qualifier routes were declared for this event.

After a long fight of around one month, the top sixteen teams were franchised and they were set to fight in a grand LAN finale from August 1. This plan is now abruptly changed since Indian government imposed a ban on BGMI.

ESPL LAN Finals has a lot at stake with a prize pool of ₹1 crore and several franchised teams playing at the same spot. While BGMI is banned, it is practically impossible to host a LAN event at such a big scale and hence, the organizers have decided to postpone it.

As we reported earlier, Krafton had intimated about this order and were asked to stop the preparations of their event in case some action is taken. ESPL was one of the major events that was scheduled right around the corner.

Krafton has now received a time period of 15 days to prove their innocence in the BGMI case to authorities. If this case is solved and the ban order is lifted, the tournaments might be rescheduled by the end of August.
