ESWC 2015 in Canada

The Electronic Sports World Cup (ESWC) has announced that its next CS:GO world championship will take place in Canada.

After hosting three CS:GO events in France in the Fall, ESWC has decided to take the game across the Atlantic for a Summer championship that will take place in Montreal, Canada, from July 9-12.

ESWC 2015 will feature two international tournaments, one for the world's best teams, who will be determined through qualifiers and applications, and a second one for female players.


 ESWC to host its second CS:GO event in North America

Both tournaments will be organized as opening events of the Mondial des Jeux Loto Québec and Just for Laughs Festival, which attract approximately 1,6 million visitors every year.

This is the second Counter-Strike championship that ESWC will host in North America, where it organised an event in 2008, in San Jose, where PGS.MYM, featuring Virtus.pro duo Filip "NEO" Kubski and Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas, were crowned champions.  

More information about these tournaments, including prize fund, application process and qualifiers, will be announced by ESWC in the coming weeks.

Besides this CS:GO championship, ESWC will host two other events in 2015, a Call of Duty tournament in Paris, from May 2-3, and a multi-games festival during Paris Games Week, from October 28 to November 1.

2015-04-01 02:33
Yessss a CS:GO major that I might be able to attend! Just hope I'll be able to get time off of whatever job I have then.
2015-03-31 20:08
this is not a major lol
2015-03-31 20:57
If you want to qualify "major" as just DHW and ESL One events, then no. But it's a long-running event that always draws top talent, so it certainly counts for something.
2015-03-31 20:59
You yanks crack me up. Everytime there is a tournament that draws euro teams its a "major" xD. Just like with MLG.

2015-03-31 21:52
Knowing the people in Quebec it's going to be close to a French tournament but will probably have slight variation.
2015-03-31 22:07
Awesome, might stop by

This is true, not to mention I believe ESWC has some office in MTL and they are a French Organization.
