Copenhagen Games' male CS:GO tournament will pay out €30,000 to the competing teams, the organisers of the event have told HLTV.org.
This means that there has been an increase of €4,000 in the prize money on offer at the Danish event when compared to the latest two editions, with the winner now taking home €17,000 instead of €14,000.
The 2016 edition of Copenhagen Games, one of the oldest and most prestigious gaming events in the Nordic region, will take place from March 23-26 inside the Øksnehallen exhibition centre.
This year's main CS:GO tournament will feature just 16 teams - half as many as it had last year, when Virtus.pro were crowned champions. Eight teams will be directly invited by the event's organisers, while the remaining eight sides will come from the on-site qualifier, open to 64 teams.
Only three days separate Copenhagen Games from MLG Columbus, so the organisers of the Danish tournament will not be issuing invites until after the offline qualifier for the major, later this month. Still, HLTV.org has learned that dignitas have already been invited as they have agreed to attend Copenhagen Games even if they secure a spot in the $250,000 competition.

Meanwhile, Copenhagen Games' organisers have confirmed that a total of €7,000 has been allocated to the women's tournament, with the prize breakdown looking as follows:
