Previously, BGMI hosted its first tournament, BGIS 2021, after being re-released in India in 2021. Over 60,000 players had registered themselves for the BGIS 2021.

Former Champion Skylightz Gaming and many fan-favorite teams like GodLike, Team Soul, TSM, etc. have started grooming and settling their squads for the big picture.
