China to host $300,000 FunSpark ULTI

The event will feature eight top sides and will offer qualifiers for teams from three different regions.

CGA and 5EPlay have announced the first details about their next event, called FunSpark ULTI, which will have a $300,000 prize pool. This represents the most ambitious project yet for CGA, which has organized events like the China Cup and the NEST Pro Series in the past.

The tournament is currently scheduled for December 1-6, but it is likely it will be postponed until 2021 after the Chinese General Administration of Sports announced last week that the country will not stage any sports events for the rest of the year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

FURIA and TYLOO are the first teams confirmed for the event

"We will host the LAN when it's safe for international players to travel to China again," a CGA representative told HLTV.org. There are currently three options to be the host city for the event: Beijing, Hainan and Chengdu.

FunSpark ULTI will feature eight teams, four invited and four qualified, with TYLOO and FURIA being the first two sides confirmed for the event. The online qualifiers will run from August 8 through October 10 in three regions (North America, Europe/CIS and Asia) and will also have $37,500 up for grabs.

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

China TYLOO
Other Invite #3
Europe EU qualifier #1
North America NA qualifier
Brazil FURIA
Other Invite #4
Europe EU qualifier #2
Asia Asia qualifier

Below you can find the teams that will compete in the online qualifiers:

Nah tyloo is really bad trust me. Take their results in Asia with a grain of salt, because their style doesn't work out well against Eu or Na teams.

giants is way more known than sAw, its preatty normal, but still would prefer 100% sAw over Giants
2020-07-15 12:55
Either there is conflict with another event or giants were invited because of ext6nce. Saw might need to qualify
2020-07-15 13:19
FunSpark ULTI: José, we would like for your team to participate in the EU qualifier. José: Which one? FunSpark ULTI: Yes.

2020-07-15 12:32
why Giants and no sAw?
2020-07-15 12:32
I'm guessing there's some deals/good relations existing between owners/TO's, or maybe it has to do with x6tence being already invited and Giants owning them. Giants are by far the weakest team on the EU qualifier list...
