Ahead of BGMS season 2, the Indian esports organisation Global Esports (GE) announced a collaboration with Number, a maker of smart apparel and gaming earbuds, as the Title Sponsor for their BGMI roster. Global Esports defeated GodLike, Orangutan, and SouL to win the championship trophy in season one.

Number is known for making specially designed gaming earbuds to support a true gaming experience and very recently launched their Super Bud Pro Series to mark the return of competitive mobile gaming in India. As part of this collaboration, the Number logo will feature on the centre of the Global Esports team jerseys for the duration of BGMS 2023. As per the companies, the month-long sponsorship aims to showcase the strong correlation between esports and technology.

Talking about the association, Number CEO and founder Jigar Mehta said, At Number, our objective is to provide gamers with the best-in-class gaming audio accessories so that they may start their journey in esports with the right equipment.
