FACEIT have teamed up with the DreamHack digital festival to host this year's FACEIT Counter Strike: Global Offensive League Season Finale. The event will happen at DreamHack Open Winter between November 26 and November 29, in Jönköping, Sweden.
I know eSports are already big business, but US cable TV will be televising Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournaments soon.
The top teams from around the globe will compete at the event to take home the $250,000 USD prize.
“Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the most played games on FACEIT and this tournament is a ‘thank you’ to the players and fans who use our platform to take part in its intense competitions, leagues and tournaments online,” said Alessandro ‘stermy’ Avallone, chief gaming officer of FACEIT Ltd. “The players’ skills and dedication to the game are what make the thriving CS:GO community what it is today.”
The eight top teams from around the world will be fighting over the prize on the largest Counter Strike:Global Offensive stage ever built at DreamHack Winter.
“We're working hard to make this the greatest DreamHack Open Winter yet,”said Tomas Lyckedal, business developer at DreamHack. “With talented teams and esteemed sponsors, DreamHack Open Winter 2015 is a key eSports event that will help push the competitive gaming scene to the next level.”
Event sponsors include Intel, Monster Energy, Razer, HyperX and EIZO, Razer, Alienware, Alphadraft and Unikrn.
I know most of the previous words in this news post seem like I just made them all up, but this is a real event. Tickets for DreamHack Open Winter 2015 are available here.
