It’s been almost 11 years since the mobile game development company Supercell was founded in 2010 and since then it has given us many unique games to entertain us with some of them entering the competitive scene. In 2020, Brawl Stars was the most popular Supercell game and is already a huge success in the competitive world. The Brawl Stars Championship 2021 began in February and has four phases and seven regions.
The tournament allows players around the world to participate in its in-game challenges. The Tournament starts with the Championship Challenge open to everyone available in the events section. The winners from there can move to the Monthly Qualifiers which is available in the ESPORTS section but can only be played by the qualified players from the last phase. The winners then move one step closer to their dream to the Monthly Finals which will be available under the ESPORTS icon and for only the Monthly Qualifier winners. Please note that all these matches will be played every month and under your respective region. All these phases are conducted every month for the top teams to compete in the World Finals in November where a Prize Pool of $5,00,000 awaits for the top brawlers of the world.
The Regions are distributed in 7 areas from North America & Latin America North (NA & LATAM N), Latin America South (LATAM S), Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Mainland China, East Asia, Southeast, and South Asia & Australia and New Zealand (SESA & ANZ) to Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA).
