ESEA sends KaBuM to Katowice
KaBuM captain Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo has confirned that his team have raised the money to attend the offline qualifier for ESL One Katowice.
KaBuM reached the 25,000 Reais target (approximately $9,000) thanks to a $2,500 donation from ESEA, which will also purchase the players' plane tickets because it takes two weeks to get access to the money from PagSeguro, one of the two payment companies through which community members could donate to help the team.
The players also received an impressive $1,400 donation from Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, who decided to support the Brazilian team by giving them a portion of his winnings from fnatic's IOS Pantamera campaign.
KaBuM will attend the event in Katowice
KaBuM stayed in Denver after attending MLG X Games Aspen and Clutch Con to practice for the event in Poland, hoping that they would be able to raise the necessary money to make the trip.
Most of the funding came from community members who donated through a website set up by KaBuM earlier in the week for this sole purpose.
