Eden Arena: Malta Vibes announced featuring $400,000 over 10 weeks
Eden Esports has announced a new tournament series called Eden Arena: Malta Vibes, which will run over the course of 10 weeks, from June 30 to September 6, with each week giving out $40,000 in prizemoney.
Malta Vibes will be played in the same format as the Home Sweet Home Cup tournament series, which concluded in mid-June and gave out a total of $320,000 in prizemoney over eight weeks of play.
Each week the organizers will run a tournament with $40,000 in prizemoney on offer as well as a paid bootcamp opportunity in Malta given to the winners. 16 teams will be in action in every tournament, which will start with a GSL group stage followed by a best-of-three, single-elimination playoffs bracket.
The participants of Eden Arena: Malta Vibes aren't known yet, but with their schedule coinciding with the end of cs_summit 6 (June 24-July 5), the official player break (July 6-August 6), and ESL One Cologne (August 21-30), certain teams are bound to be off-limits for a portion of the ten tournaments.
