After a successful first season of TEC Gauntlet, The Esports Club is back again with the second season of the tournament.
The Esports Club previously announced a four-season long TEC Gauntlet tournament for all South Asian teams. TEC Gauntlet Season 1 came to an end last week as Velocity Gaming was crowned the champions after beating Global Esports in the Grand-Finals.
Since then, fans have been eagerly waiting for the second season of the tournament. Recently, in an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda Esports, Ishaan Arya, the co-founder of The Esports Club, promised that fans can expect something bigger in the TEC Gauntlet Season 2.
The organizers announced the commencement of TEC Gauntlet Season 2 with the group-stage draw today.

A total of 16 teams have qualified for the Regular Season of the TEC Gauntlet Season 2. The top six teams from each group of the TEC Gauntlet Season 1 along with four newly qualified teams from the Season 2 qualifiers, will battle for their place in the TEC Gauntlet Season 2 Playoffs.
