Relog Media unveil "flagship teams" for 2021; announce Snow Sweet Snow Cup 1 team list

A number of teams within the top 30 of the world rankings have committed to playing at least six Relog Media events across the year.

The tournament organizer behind Nine to Five and Home Sweet Home cups, Relog Media, announced its partner teams for the year, as well as the list of squads that will be competing in the regional stage of their first event, the Snow Sweet Snow Cup 1.

Teams such as North, Sprout, Gambit, and Endpoint are confirmed as "flagship teams", having signed agreements to attend at least six Relog Media events across the year, three of them in the first half of the year. The company announced their yearly plan in December, with three $100,000 cups confirmed for January - March, and similar competitions expected for the rest of 2021.

Gambit will compete in at least six Relog Media events in 2021

While the most notable flagship teams will be joining the competition in the latter stages, the Main Swiss or Playoffs stage, some less proven squads found their way onto the flagship team list, which isn't yet finalized. Academy squads such as Astralis Talent and Young Ninjas stand out from the list that mostly features top-100 squads from all over Europe.

Currently, the following teams have been confirmed as flagship teams, committing to at least six Relog Media events across the year:

Snow Sweet Snow Cup #1 will take place on January 18 - February 11 and feature a $100,000 prize pool, with the teams for the first, Regional GSL stage also confirmed. Out of each GSL group, two teams will advance to the Regional Swiss stage, from where the eight best will go to the Main Swiss portion of the tournament.

The following teams will compete in the Regional GSL groups:

CIS 1

CIS 2

Nordic West

Nordic East

West Europe

Iberia

Balkan

Poland

A portion of the teams invited to the following stages have also been announced. Gambit and Virtus.pro will go directly to the playoff stage, while PACT, forZe, North, Sprout, and Endpoint will start from the Main Swiss stage, with a handful of teams yet to be announced.

The $100,000 prize pool for the event will be distributed as follows:

Regional GSL - $1,000 per qualifying team (Total: $16,000)
Regional Swiss - $2,000 per qualifying team (Total: $16,000)
Main Swiss - $3,000 per qualifying team (Total: $24,000)
Playoffs - $44,000

Correction: An earlier version of this article mentioned NIP as one of the flagship teams. Relog Media and NiP have since clarified that the partnership revolves around the Swedish organisation's academy squad, called Young Ninjas.

Wow...

Gambit is going to stuck in t2 forever if they will play in such tournaments. why they cant sign contract with ESL or Blast league? playing such garbage tournaments in such garbage league can actually stop their growth. I dontbwant them to become wasted potential in this way. they should play more t1 events and prove themselves against t1 opponents. such a shame
