The Electronic Sports League (ESL) has announced more details regarding the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament for the upcoming season of the ESL Major Series.
Earlier in the month, the ESL revealed that CS:GO had replaced CS:Source in the EMS and that Valve's new FPS game would feature a €5,000 competition.
The prize distribution for the tournament has now been revealed, with the winner taking home €2,500, while the runner-up and the third-placed team will receive €1,500 and €1,000, respectively.
Moreover, the ESL has indicated that the national qualifiers will run from September 17 through to October 7.
Due to the fact that there has not been an EPS season in CS:GO in any country, all teams will have to qualify for the EMS.
Prior to the main EMS round, there will be two qualifying rounds which feature teams from all over Europe, though the number of slots allocated to each country has not yet been disclosed.
In order to stay up to date on the national qualifiers, the ESL asks teams to check their country page.
