Information regarding prize pools for Brawl Stars and Battlegrounds Mobile has yet to be revealed. Clash of Clans will be played from early June to early July 2022, with teams competing for $50,000 (£39,800) in prize money. Judging from a graphic shared by Snapdragon Pro Series’ Twitter account, Battlegrounds Mobile India will be played in July, with Brawl Stars commencing October.
Although the news was just shared by ESL Gaming, the tournament organiser’s General Manager of Mobile Kevin Rosenblatt stated that India will be included in the tournament series back in March 2022.
The Snapdragon Pro Series was announced in March and is a mobile esports tournament series developed jointly by ESL Gaming and chip manufacturer Qualcomm. The tournament will consist of three tiers and includes a variety of mobile games, depending on the tier and region. Some notable titles in the series include Wild Rift, Clash of Clans, Free Fire and PUBG Mobile.

Considering the differences in regions, it makes sense that Indian players will be able to participate in Battlegrounds Mobile India, the spinoff of PUBG Mobile that was developed after India banned a large number of Chinese games and other software.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is developed by KRAFTON, a South Korean company, making it legal in India.
Esports Insider says: The Snapdragon Pro Series is slowly ramping up, and the official inclusion of India is welcome. Since India has banned Free Fire, one of the most popular games in the region, the overall lineup of games for the Pro Series does seem somewhat slim for a country the size of India.
