ESEA presents Global Challenge LAN

ESEA have announced the creation of a LAN which will include 50,000 dollars in prize money for qualifying teams from six different regions.

With the lack of a direct qualifier for Season 22 of the ESL Pro League, a new tournament has been created which will give international LAN experience to teams that might otherwise not have the chance to gain it.


ESEA Global Challenge will provide an opportunity for new teams to make it into the big leagues 

With the global expansion of Counter Strike as their backdrop, and with teams such as TyLoo and Tempo Storm rising from peripheral regions and garnering upset potential, ESEA have focused on creating a tournament which "will be the first step for getting new faces invited into larger international events," according to Brett Sheffiled, Product Manager at ESEA.

The ESEA Global Challenge LAN will feature eight teams from six regions with a $50,000 prize pool. 

Qualifying Regions: 

North America — 2 teams (Top 2 Premier teams)
Europe — 2 teams (Top 2 Premier teams)
Brazil — 1 team (Regional champion)
Australia — 1 team (Regional champion) 
Asia — 1 team (Regional champion)
TBA — 1 team

Prize Breakdown:

1. - $18,000
2. - $10,000
3. - $5,000
4. - $5,000
5-8. - $3,000

Sounds great! Good for the scene

I guess the tournament is intended for teams outside of the ESL pro league roster. Premier teams probably.

Yes, it is a good thing for low tier 2 teams. Makes no sense for teams like LG to play on this. They are already on ESL pro league.

2016-04-21 14:53
By regional champion I think it means whoever wins the BR esea league and if argentinians and chileans are allowed to play the BR esea league I see no problem with a arg or chil team winning the BR esea league and going to the global challenge lan.

Hmm TS wont attend, they dont play the ESEA main league. LG might get a spot being #1 or #2 on NA ESEA League. It will be probably LG and Keyd Stars then.

Still dumb. "ESEA have focused on creating a tournament which "will be the first step for getting new faces invited into larger international events". It's for NEW faces. LG is pretty known. Obviously this is not a tournament they would get into in any way. You obviously don't understand what you read.

2016-04-21 15:27
This is really cool. Sometimes top level teams can't find good players to fill in because no one has enough experience to show they can step up. More events and tournaments like this can help all that. Kind of like a minor league system in baseball without the lower orgs being tied to the upper orgs.
