Outsourcing firm Pole to Win has made the surprise unveiling of its own PUBG Mobile esports team.
The new team, known as Orange Rock Esports, is made up of former Indian Tigers members and other pro players.

“The growth and potential of esports is phenomenal,” said Pole to Win CEO Deborah Kirkham.
“Orange Rock Esports represents our first foray into an incredibly exciting arena. We are thrilled to join this rapidly growing industry and ready to cheer on our talented team.”
