Romanian company PGL has announced a partnership with KeSPA to host the Asia Minor Championship in Seoul, next month.
With Counter-Strike continuing to grow at an incredible rate in Asia, PGL announced that it plans to "reinvent" the CS:GO scene in the region through a partnership with KeSPA, the governing body of esports in South Korea.
Taking place from May 5-8 at the Nexon eSports Arena, in Seoul, the Asian Minor will feature eight teams, who will compete for $50,000 in prize money and two spots at the offline qualifier for the ESL One Cologne Major.
