V4 Future Sports Festival returns with $335,000 prize pool

The organisers of the V4 Future Sports Festival have announced the first details about the second iteration of the event, featuring €300,000 (~$335,000) in prize money.

The gaming festival will take place on September 21-22 at an as-yet-undisclosed location in Budapest, with CS:GO taking up the vast majority of the prize pool of the event, where Fortnite and various simulator games will also be played.

Just like last year, the tournament will feature eight teams, four invited and four qualified. However, this time around the event's organisers will be opening the qualifying system to all European teams with a continental tournament with one spot for the Budapest competition on offer.

Budapest will once again host an international CS:GO tournament

The remaining three qualifying places have been allocated to the V4 countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland), which will host qualifiers featuring two open brackets and a closed eight-team tournament.

Teams can sign up for the qualifiers, kicking off this weekend for the V4 countries and only on September 7 for the rest of Europe, by clicking the links below:

Hungary - Register
Poland - Register

The prize distribution for the event is the following:

1. €150,000 ($167,000)
2. €70,000 ($73,800)
3-4. €20,000 ($22,370)
5-8. €10,000 ($11,185)

mousesports won the first edition of the V4 Future Sports Festival, which had almost $600,000 on the line, after beating Virtus.pro in the grand final. The tournament featured two other big names in HellRaisers and FaZe, who were eliminated in the semi-finals.

2019-08-14 16:54
This whole thing is funded by the government. It takes place one month prior to the elections, just like last year. Politics is the main reason this event is a thing
2019-08-16 10:16
That's interesting actually. Does it gonna work tho? Spending public money on price pool that will not even go to Hungarian team is not good PR IMO.
2019-08-16 10:30
Trust me they love spending money. Very few of the young people like them, so they gotta do something.

Tbh, I think that's fair. Given how much government spending is done on recreational Sports, I think it's reasonable to spread the wealth to esports. I wish more countries (including my own) would get on that bandwagon and see how widespread an audience exists out there for it, nowadays.
