GameGune 2014 with CS:GO female
The GameGune organisers have announced that this year's event will feature a CS:GO female tournament.
GameGune 2014 will run from July 4th to 6th in Bilbao, and, for the first time in the event's history, it will not take place under the wings of the Euskal LAN as the venue chosen is the Palacio Euskalduna, close to Athletic Bilbao's stadium and the Nervión river.
The event's website reveals that only two games will be played at this year's event, League of Legends, and CS:GO (for female teams only), a decision that has taken many by surprise.
No more GameGune at Euskal
Contacted by HLTV.org, the event organisers confirmed that this information is real and justified the move with an imposition from a sponsor to promote gender equality.
Last year, GameGune did not feature Counter-Strike altogether for the first time in the event's history as Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Xbox 360) was the only game picked.
The sign-up process and the prize purse for GameGune's female CS:GO tournament will be announced in the coming weeks. All teams interested in attending the event can contact the organisers by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
