GG.BET Invitational announced with $5,000 prize pool, IEM Sydney spot on offer
GG.BET has announced that it will host an invitational tournament with $5,000 and a spot at IEM Sydney on the line.
The tournament will be held online from March 25-31 and will feature ten teams from Europe and CIS, two of whom have secured direct entry into the semi-final stage.
The remaining eight sides will be split into two double-elimination groups, featuring a best-of-three format in the decider matches and in the group finals. The group winners will be taking up the final two slots in the single-elimination bracket, in which all matches will be played in a best-of-three format.
GG.BET will soon reveal the invites to the tournament, which will be the second international competition hosted by the betting company since the start of the year. The first, called the "GG.Bet Ice Challenge", was held in London last month and saw North secure the title after beating Natus Vincere in the final.
The winner of the GG.BET Sydney Invitational will join the list of participants for the upcoming IEM event, which already features eight teams, including FaZe, Liquid and local representative Renegades.
Next week marks the start of the GG Bet Sydney Invitational, an online tournament where the winning team will receive an invite to #IEM Sydney 2019!— Intel®ExtremeMasters (@IEM) March 21, 2019
