betway Nine to Five 5 announced with $50,000 prize pool

A new edition of Nine to Five, sponsored by betway, is scheduled to start on October 19, with teams such as Dignitas, Heretics, and Hard Legion in competition.

Relog Media's Nine to Five online tournaments will continue after a three-week break, with the initial matches of the Nine to Five 5 Dawn qualifier scheduled for Monday, 19th October.

As the name suggests, matches will be played earlier in the day, with a GSL BO3 group stage used for the four-group qualifier (Nine to Five 5 Dawn), from where eight of sixteen teams will advance to the main event. A sixteen-team Swiss system will be used in the group stage of the main event, leading to the single-elimination playoffs which will take place in early November.

Hard Legion will start the competion in Nine to Five 5 Dawn, the qualifier tournament

Teams mainly ranked between the 40th and 100th place in the world will be competing in Nine to Five 5 Dawn, while Dignitas, and Virtus.pro are the most exciting names confirmed starting in the Swiss stage.

Nine to Five 5 Dawn teams:

Nine to Five 5 Swiss stage invitees:
