North invited to Copenhagen Games 2018
The organizers of Copenhagen Games have announced that North received the first invitation for the event taking place at the end of March.
The prize pool of this year's Copenhagen Games has almost doubled compared to last year's event which offered $56,300 in cash prizes. Copenhagen Games 2018 will have a minimum prize pool of $100,000 thanks to a partnership with television provider Waoo and will take place from March 28 to April 1.
North, who have recently underwent roster changes with Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye and Daniel "mertz" Mertz's additions, received one of the four invites and will be at the Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark at the end of March.
In his statement, the CEO of North expressed their enthusiasm to play in front of their home crowd at the Bella Center:
"Playing abroad is always a fun experience but there's something quite special about playing at home, about playing in front of a Danish audience. That's why we're so excited to announce our participation at Copenhagen Games 2018." said Christian Sørensen, the CEO of North.
"It gives our wonderful Danish community the chance to see us live and we're looking forward to seeing all our dedicated North fans in Bella Center Copenhagen this Easter!"
The remaining three invites, tournament format, and prize money distribution will be revealed as the tournament date draws near. There will also be four open qualifiers to round out the team list.
