DreamHack Japan will host the inaugural Snapdragon Pro Series Mobile Masters, set to take place from May 13-14, 2023.

The tournament will see eight of the best Brawl Stars teams compete to become the series' first-ever global champion and claim a share of the USD 200,000 prize pool.

Qualification to the event will be based on the performance during Season 2 of the Challenge tier, with eight places up for grabs from four Snapdragon Pro Series regions: North America, Europe & MENA, Asia Pacific, and India.

The Snapdragon Pro Series is a multi-tier, multi-region mobile esports event organized by Qualcomm and ESL FACEIT Group. Season 1 featured eight mobile titles and a USD 2 million prize pool; all-in-all, 600,000 competitors took part.

DreamHack Japan will be the first Masters tier event, with previous competitions being part of the Open and Challenge tiers.

Kevin Rosenblatt, SVP of Game Ecosystems at ESL FACEIT Group, said:

"The Snapdragon Pro Series is a foundational blueprint for aspiring mobile esports competitors from ranked play to global champion.

"After two seasons of Brawl Stars competition across four global regions, Mobile Masters is the pinnacle of the journey, highlighting how anyone with a smartphone can climb through the ranks. Together with Qualcomm Technologies and Samsung, we're looking forward to sharing the promise and excitement of mobile with our audience at DreamHack Japan."
