NRG invited to CS:GO Asia Championships; prize money increased to $500,000

Perfect World has announced that NRG have been invited to compete at the 2019 CS:GO Asia Championship and that the total prize fund has been increased to $500,000.

The news represents an increase of $200,000 in prize money, making the CS:GO Asia Championships the second richest of the tournaments that are so far confirmed for the final three months of the year after the StarLadder Major.

NRG are the fourth team confirmed for the event, joining the previously invited trio of ENCE, MIBR and TYLOO. There are now just three invites left to reveal, with the final team being determined by a Chinese qualifier.

NRG to travel to Shanghai in November

The CS:GO Asia Championships 2019 will take place from November 21-24 at an as-yet-undisclosed venue in Shanghai. Last year's tournament was won by Natus Vincere, who beat Virtus.pro in the final.

The team list for the Chinese event currently looks as follows:

Finland ENCE
China TYLOO
Other TBD
Other TBD
Brazil MIBR
United States NRG
