Game Show announces $200,000 Cup
Game Show has announced that it will host a global CS:GO tournament with offline finals and $200,000 in prize money.
After hosting two league seasons for European teams only, Game Show has decided to take things to a whole new level and host a global tournament, called the Game Show Global eSports Cup, with three divisions, for European, North American and CIS teams.
The European division will consist of two double-elimination group stages, each one featuring 16 teams. Eight invited teams will square off against eight teams coming from online qualifiers in the opening group stage. The top two teams from each group will then move on to the next stage, in which they will be joined by eight other invited sides, among whom will be DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca champions EnVyUs.
Three regions will compete in the Game Show Global eSports Cup
As for the CIS and the North American divisions, they will consist of just one group stage, also featuring 16 teams, eight invited and eight qualified.
The top four sides from the European division and the top two teams from the North American and the CIS divisions will then clash at the season finals, held in Vilnius, Lithuania, from February 4-7. A total of $200,000 will be up for grabs at the event - a figure that does not take into account travel support, which is handed separately, in compliance with team union demands.
Below you can find the registration links for the regional qualifiers, which will be hosted by FACEIT.
