Insomnia announces UK Masters CS:GO Open with ~$40,000 prize fund
The UK's biggest gaming festival returns with Insomnia63, featuring the UK Masters CS:GO Open with a prize pool of £30,000 (approximately $40,000).
The massive prize pool increase (from the £7,500 on offer at Insomnia62) highlights the event organisers' commitment to "bringing more to the CS:GO community in the United Kingdom".
The UK Masters will feature two open qualifiers, held on the FACEIT platform, with the top performing teams advancing to a closed stage. The top two sides from this closed qualifier will earn accommodation to the event and £1,000 ($1,340) in travel support.
Insomnia has yet to announce the tournament format and prize pool distribution for the event, with an update expected "in the coming weeks."
The UK Masters CS:GO Open will take place from August 24-27 at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), in Birmingham. Registration for the open qualifiers is already open, with the first qualifier kicking off on June 26.
