The Skyesports Grandslam LUNA tournament, which was hosted under the India Gaming Show initiative, had the honor of hosting Hon. President Droupadi Murmu in Delhi last week. This all-female VALORANT tournament is backed by the Government of India and is on the forefront of the exponential growth of Indian esports.

Indian Government Acknowledges Gaming as a Part of Sports

In recent years, the Indian government has acknowledged gaming as a part of sports in India. This acknowledgement led to the President of India’s visit to an esports event, where she graced the Skyesports Grandslam LUNA tournament. This visit was significant as it elevated the standard of Skyesports Grandslam LUNA as the only tournament in India that has seen the presence of the First Citizen of India.

“I feel really great,” said Grace Esports’ Meow16k after becoming the Champion of the tournament as well as getting an opportunity to showcase her skill in front of the Hon’ble President; “first of all, this is the first all-female VALORANT LAN. Thanks to Skyesports for organizing such a great event and bringing a chance for us to play on stage. And yes I am feeling fabulous, first LAN and it’s in our pocket.”

Hon. Heavy Industries Minister Mahendra Nath Pandey also attended the Microsoft Skyesports Grandslam LUNA alongside Hon. President Droupadi Murmu. This event took place at the JetSynthesys Gaming Arena in IGS, Delhi. The IGS, an initiative by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), is backed by the government of India.

Madame President Encourages Female Squads Playing in the Tournament

The Skyesports Grandslam LUNA is an all-female VALORANT tournament. Madame President’s visit was particularly special as it encouraged the female squads playing in the tournament to achieve outstanding results in their professional journey. The presence of Hon. President Droupadi Murmu in the tournament has shown that women have a place in the world of esports, and they can achieve greatness just like men.

Commenting on the unique opportunity, Shiva Nandy, Founder and CEO, Skyesports said, “It was really exciting to meet our Hon’ble President Shrimati Droupadi Murmu at the India Gaming Show 2023.
