Budapest to host V4 Future Sports Festival, with almost $600,000 on offer

January 10th, 2018 23:00

The first details about the V4 Future Sports Festival have been announced, with the event featuring a CS:GO tournament with €500,000 (~$597,000) on offer.

Hosted by Egymillióan a magyar esportért Egyesület (Association of One Million People for Hungarian Esports) with the support of the Hungarian Digital Wellness Program, V4 Future Sports Festival will take place from March 23-25 at Budapest's BOK Hall indoor arena, which will have a capacity of 6,000 people.

The unveiling ceremony and press conference took place in Budapest and was attended by Tamás Deutsch, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP), and by six-time Olympic medalist László Cseh.

Budapest will host an esports event with over $1 million in prizes

The event will feature a total prize pool of €1 million (~$1.19 million), with CS:GO taking the biggest chunk of the pie, while the rest of the money will be distributed among the other three tournaments (League of Legends, FIFA 18 and Clash Royale).

"The V4 Future Sports Festival will not only be the first new generation esports community hub in Hungary and in Central and Eastern Europe, but will also enable esports players and teams that are eager to develop, improve their skills and share their experience," said Balázs Biró, chairman of Egymillióan a magyar esportért Egyesület.

The event will be aimed at the V4 countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland), from which four of the eight competing teams will hail, determined by online qualifiers. The other four teams will be invited by the event organisers and they will need to be tied to the V4 region in some way, HLTV.org has learned. This most likely means that at least one of the players from each of the invited teams will need to come from one of these four countries.

Registration for the online qualifiers is already open and can be done via ESL's website. The winner of the Polish and the Hungarian qualifiers and the top two teams of the Czech/Slovakian qualifier will earn spots at the V4 Future Sports Festival.

Below you can find the prize distribution for the event:

1. €200,000 (~$238,000)
2. €100,000 (~$119,000)
3-4. €50,000 (~$59,750)
5-8. €25,000 (~$29,870)

Can you buy tickets for the LAN event?
2018-01-10 23:23
Actually you don't even need tickets because it's free to enter,you only have to register but you can only choose from the V4 countries on the register page so idk how people from other countries can register,if they are supposed to be able to
2018-01-10 23:28
I'm not from those countries listed, so I was wondering if it was still possible getting into the event so bad, cause they would earn good money :S

Weird is this "“The application is only a pre-registration, does not constitute a secure attendance at the event or at the conference!” what does it mean lol? I will make registration travel to hungary thousands of kilometers and at the end they tell me in front of arena no you are not allowed to enter. Weird.

2018-01-11 05:59
What are you on about, one of the definitions of Eastern Europe is any former Soviet state. "Eastern Europe" isn't definitively defined and many people believe it means different things, he's not dumb for calling the v4 nations eastern Europe because for a long time that's what everybody in Europe considered them as. It's only as these nations become more and more westernised and embrace capitalism that some people have decided to label them central Europe but many people who are not exactly wrong believe there is no central Europe and only instead western and Eastern.

Slovakia janesick 
yeah, now go on and google yourself which countries are former Soviet ones, smartass. And it's not about being "westernised" lately - because these countries had long history in Europe, being relevant for European politics all over the middle ages. And that's also what V4 is refering to... but your knowledge is only UK oriented, so sorry if I hurt your feelings, bro.
2018-01-11 12:35
The v4 nations were satellite states of soviet Russia, they were controlled by the soviets. Yes these nations had a long history with the rest of western Europe, so what? That doesn't make what I said wrong, since the end of ww2 everything east of Germany was called eastern Europe, the Berlin wall was what split western Europe from Eastern Europe and not until the collapse of the Soviet union did the term central Europe gain use. Why would you have hurt my feelings, you didn't say anything that proved me wrong at all. No idea why you think you did.
2018-01-11 13:29
They weren't part of Soviet Russia officialy,so there's that :)

Slovakia janesick 
Because you're wrong even if you handle it from the sights of UK historians - the whole "west and east" thing was used before WW2 and the "east" was everything from Germany (Germany including), with Imperial Russia being considered as a non-European country. You're making connections between this and the iron curtain, which has nothing to do with it (it's from different century) and more controversially, you're applying it at present times.
2018-01-11 18:02
Again, you're believing that the term eastern Europe only has one correct definition when the very first line for the wikipedia entry of eastern Europe explains "There is no consensus on the precise area it covers" meaning THERE IS NOT ONE CORRECT ANSWER. I honestly cannot spell it out more plainly for you.

Did I mention CZ, Poland? I only talked about Hungary and Slovakia. I was born in eastern Europe, very close to the political "central Europe". So I definitely know what eastern, central and western Europe is. I speak Hungarian and I can tell you that even the ppl there consider themselves as eastern Europeans. But as "OffensiveFarmer" said: Politics has changed and geographical positions of countries are not decided by their real location. It's about "Hey buddy, you are not East Europe, you belong to central so get in to the EU to extend the shit as wide as possible." Originally central Europe was/is Benelux, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, CZ, Poland. All other belong to east, west, north and south, though some square km of east, west, north and south countries could belong to central Europe
2018-01-11 10:00
wait what, Benelux part of Central Europe? There are only a few countries more 'West' than us, being France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the UK lol

2018-01-11 13:05
True that (y) But You can hardly call Spain/Portugal Western Europe, Southern Europe would fit better, and Iceland would obv be Northern Europe. So according to our German friend here, Western Europe consists of France, the UK and Ireland? :D btw: nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/West-Europa#/media..

 | 
Germany s2ily 
I wouldn't count France as central. That's why I said that it's way more complicated imo. Central Europe is Germany and a few countries who have a border with Germany. I know that France has a border with France but the country is big and so the main part goes to south-west Europe. Spain is Southwest, while Italy, Slovenia is south and other countries are or go slowly but surely in to south east.
2018-01-11 13:28
so according to you Western Europe is a myth and not a single country belongs to it? Whatever you are trying to declare: Benelux is NEVER seen as CENTRAL-Europe, please cite me a single source that does so

I tried not to get triggered, but I did so now I have to answer you I said: FaZe idn't participate in lower competition events like V4 Future Sports Festival then people said: but ez money???? then I said: many tier 1 teams skipped events with low competition and high price pool before. explanation for retards: I used WESG as a example, because it has the biggest price pool. the top teams teams that skipped it are for example Astralis, NiP, G2. therefore it wouldn't be a surpise if FaZe as a top team as well would skip a low competition and high price pool event as well (V4 Future Sports) it is completely irrelevant that FaZe can not participate in WESG and that Astralis etc can not participate in V4 Future Sports. this was just an example to show that for several top teams money is not the most important thing. everybody with a brain should understand this, but you are stupid and still think you are right gj you triggered me

ok but if tier 1 teams skip high money events and FaZe has never done that, then why would FaZe skip one of those? when they have never done that. Ur the retarded one didn't even read the end of ur msg bc ur so retarded goodbye
2018-01-11 14:59
I had two points: 1. FaZe have never played any low competition events (if I remember correctly), even when they were only a top 15 team and went out in group stage at every event. that is why I think they won't change this, even if they skip ez money that way 2. other top teams (Astralis, NiP, G2, ...) skipped low competition but high price pool events before. therefore I think that FaZe may do it as well to sum up: 1. FaZe never play in low comp + 2. other teams skip such events as well -> I would not be surprised if FaZe skip V4 Future Sports

2. other top teams (Astralis, NiP, G2, ...) skipped low competition but high price pool events before. therefore I think that FaZe may do it as well This is like saying, a lot of people kill themselves with ropes, Obama might do it as well. 1. FaZe have never played any low competition events (if I remember correctly), even when they were only a top 15 team and went out in group stage at every event. that is why I think they won't change this, even if they skip ez money that way This is probably bc they are never invited to low tier events since it would make them unfair nowadays. Back in the days I really dont know bc I didnt watch faze then

you also need to have all the players from the same country in WESG, which is quite rare nowadays. Furthermore, you have to travel to China
2018-01-11 15:13
that is of course true but still the price pool of WESG is much bigger than of V4 Future Sports just saying, I wouldn't be surprised if FaZe skip it

the prizepool of wesg is 1.5m for 32 teams, while at v4 there's 600k for 8 teams. If we're only talking about faze, then of course wesg is bigger, since the winner earns more there obv, but still. Also, I read an article in hungarian about this event, and they claimed that FaZe, VP, mouz and HR are the invited teams.
2018-01-11 16:04
ok I would actually prefer if some big names compete there, so hopefully they are right in the article thanks for the info

Honestly, it would be better for the event if we had two spots and AGO + Kinguin/Pride could qualify. But I understand the idea of one spot for each country and since all CZ/SK teams are mixed, you have two spots. Fair enough

Eu concordo com campeonatos locais e com times locais. Mas a FaZe é muito mais forte que esses aí. Por mim só teria os times locais, mesmo com alta premiação, não teria problema. Mas se coloca um forte como a FaZe, tira a ideia de ser local, já que é um time da União Européia. Valeu!
2018-01-13 05:23
Então não é local? O Guardian não conta? Compreendo que é só um jogador, mas se também formos a ver eles em princípio convidaram mouz (que tem ropz Chris e sunny que não são desta região), os hr(issa, woxic, etc) .. podemos dizer que este é um torneio europeu e cabe aos organizadores decidir quem vai, se eles acham que estas equipas encaixam na visão deles para o torneio, quem somos nós para dizer que não?

thats racism from HUNGARY ! not letting other people to enter just from those 4 countries... ! this must be the best tournament !
2018-01-11 09:02
It's fixed,now other countries can enter too The whole thing seems like was rushed,first the place was at the Syma Arena on the website,then they changed it,then only 4 countries could register...

VP, Faze, Mouse, Hellraisers invited + eXtatus, AGO, GameAgents, ??? qualified? .... seems like a great event anyways + 25,000€ for 5.-8., that is a huge amount of money for every semi-pro team from those countries
