The league will have three tiers of competition — Open, Challenge and Masters — and have around $2 million in prize money at stake.
The Snapdragon Pro Series will have tournaments in North America, Europe, the Middle-East, China, North Africa and Asia-Pacific.
Qualcomm will understandably use the tournament to leverage Snapdragon powered devices that are backed by Snapdragon Elite Gaming technology
