E-Xpress Interactive, in associated with Games The Shop, recently held the national tournament finals for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 in Mumbai. The winner of the 32 participants would go on to win a trip to Milan. In the end, it was Mumbai’s own Aniruddh Joshi who walked away with the grand prize.
Joshi stated that, “I cannot express how happy I am. I have been a PES player for 12 years and every year the game offers something new to the fans. After winning the Mumbai Qualifier, I practised every single day and it has paid off. I would like to thank Konami, e-xpress and Games The Shop for giving the Indian PES community a slot to play against the best PES players across the globe. It will be an honour to represent India in Milan and I will work harder to do well there”.
E-Xpress co-founder Anand Khemani weighed in on the win, stating that, “We would like to congratulate Aniruddh Joshi and wish him good luck for his Milan trip. His achievement will inspire budding e-sports players in the country. We would also like to thank the PES community for an overwhelming response to all the qualifiers and finals”.
