Cologne/New YorkApril 25, 2023ESL FACEIT Group (EFG), the leading esports and video game entertainment company, today announced an expanded roadmap for the April start of Year 2 of the Snapdragon Pro Series Powered by Samsung Galaxy, the world’s largest multi-game mobile esports competition.

  • Call of Duty: Mobile: In partnership with Activision Publishing, Inc., Call of Duty: Mobile will become a Mobile Masters title and feature a USD $1.5 million prize pool during its first year as part of the Snapdragon Pro Series.

  • Garena Free Fire: After a standout year for the program featuring some of the highest viewership of the Snapdragon Pro Series worldwide, Garena Free Fire will become a Mobile Masters title in Year 2 with a USD $200,000 prize pool. 
  • Mobile Legends: Bang Bang: Mobile Legends: Bang Bang will add a USD $150,000 event to its Snapdragon Pro Series circuit and become EFG’s first-ever stand-alone stadium event for mobile esports.
