$100,000 Gfinity CS:GO Invitational

Gfinity CS:GO Invitational will feature four teams, a $100,000 prize pool and will be held at EGX 2016 in Birmingham, UK from on September 22-25.

The UK tournament organizer Gfinity announced that they would be holding "Gfinity CS:GO Invitational presented by Omen by HP" later this month at EGX 2016, a British gaming expo. The tournament will take place over three days, with a 'Play Like A Pro' exhibition preceding the start of the official competition.

Teams will play out the semi-final matches on Friday and Saturday, while Sunday will be reserved for the grand final match.

With only four teams attending and a single-elimination bracket, we can presume best-of-five matches will be played - something Gfinity did at the Champion of Champions tournament, although those details have not yet been confirmed.


GODSENT are the first team to be announced for Gfinity CS:GO Invitational

The first team to be announced for the event is Markus "pronax" Wallsten's GODSENT. The Swedish lineup consisting of former fnatic players recently had a poor showing at StarSeries Season 2, going out in the groups after defeats to NiP and Dignitas.

The remaining three teams to attend the Gfinity will be announced in the coming days, so stay tuned to HLTV.org for more information.

invite at least a chinese team, heroic and a team like C9 and this tournament can be pretty good
2016-09-13 21:10
Godsent heroic cloud9 and tyloo sick tournament lol
2016-09-13 21:16
has potential imo. most people just slate a small tournament straight away because it doesn't have SK, Na`Vi, VP, G2 etc in it but it has potential after what we've seen from the sl-i league finals. maybe change heroic for nV to make it more interesting
2016-09-13 21:22
Dont forget vg.cyberzen. This team is sick
