Eden Esports announce $300,000 Malta Vibes Knockout Series
The organizers will host six single-elimination-style monthly tournaments beginning in August.
Eden Esports have announced their newest tournament series called the 'Malta Vibes Knockout Series', which will award $300,000 and twelve bootcamp packages in Malta across six monthly tournaments taking place from August-January. The first event will run following the end of the summer tournament break, from August 16-26.
The series will be part of the $3 million Elisa Champion of Champions Tour — also featuring Home Sweet Home, Elisa Invitational, and Funspark events —, and have points on offer in the circuit's ranking, which will determine the participants of the final Champion of Champions tournament taking place in 2022.
"I am very excited to announce the return of the Malta Vibes series in 2021," Eden Esports' CEO, Sergey Bidzan, said. "This time with a new and refreshing knockout format, a wider distribution of the prize pool, and being a part of the Elisa Champions of Champions ranking circuit with further invites to the recently announced new series of LAN events."
Each of the six $50,000 Malta Vibes Knockout Series will boast 32 teams in the initial stages of the single-elimination bracket format, with eight more directly invited a few rounds ahead, to the round of 16. The organizers have revealed that every team will be invited but promised to "support various regions across Europe and give all teams within their reach a chance."
