Gfinity LAN with $30k prize purse

Gfinity has announced that it will hold an event in the United Kingdom with up to $30,000 up for grabs in the CS:GO tournament.

Gfinity has been very busy of late trying to break into the competitive scene and is currently organising a professional league featuring cash prizes of $7,500 and some of Europe's strongest sides.

It has now been confirmed that Gfinity is moving on to organising a major LAN event, which will take place from May 24th to 25th at the 7,000-seated Copperbox Arena at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

There will be five games (Call of Duty: Ghosts, CS:GO, DotA 2, StarCraft II and Fifa 14) being played at the event, for a combined prize purse of $175,000. HLTV.org knows that at least $30,000 will be allocated to the CS:GO tournament.

There will be invitational and open qualifiers for the British event. More information about these tournaments will be revealed during the coming days.

Spectator tickets will go on sale on Monday, March 24th, priced at £22 per day.

Is gfinity just MLG's expansion into Europe? where is their funding from?
2014-03-20 21:52
Gfinity is seperate to MLG, only partnered up.
2014-03-20 21:56
who gave them 175k+?
2014-03-20 22:11
Sponsors. They have been hosting leagues and lans for a while. They're pretty much the only organizer in the UK so finding sponsors from locals is "easy".
2014-03-20 22:38

So CS:GO isn't even getting 1/5th of the overall prize purse for the 5 tournaments. INB4 $100k to COD:Ghosts \o/ Either way, still awesome :D. UK scene needs something.
2014-03-21 00:13
At least 30k bro so it might be more than that
2014-03-21 00:35
Alth, it is minimum prize at the moment. ;)

This is great news. hopefully some great teams go. On another note however, if this really is to help the uk scene they will have to have a uk ONLY qualifier with maybe 3 or 4 places up for grabs in the main event. I really hope they do this regardless of the fact they would probably get smashed out it's the first step in the right direction. peace xx ;)
2014-03-21 18:45
Yea there will be a UK only qualifier :)
