CEVO S7 with $135,000 purse
CEVO has announced that it has guaranteed a minimum $135,000 prize fund for its premium CS:GO divisions for season 7.
Following the success of the RGN Intercontinental Open tournaments, CEVO has decided to officially reach out to Europe, where it will open pay-to-play and free-to-play CS:GO divisions.
Season 7's professional division will culminate with the offline finals at the MLG Arena in Columbus, Ohio, from July 24-26, where the top four teams from Europe and North America will duke it out for their share of the $75,000 prize purse. CEVO will also offer the participating teams $42,000 in travel support.
To earn an invite to this division, teams will have to prove their worth in the off-season placement tournament, which will take place from March 22 to April 9.
CEVO has also announced that it will turn to crowdfunding to beef up their prizes, so a lot more money could be on offer in Season 7, which is scheduled to start on April 19.
