Swedish Championship with €23,000

The organisers behind the Swedish Championship, known as Esport SM in Sweden, have announced that the upcoming season will hand out over €23,000 in the CS:GO tournament.

The 2012-13 season of the Swedish Championship will, as usual, kick off in October and finish with the LAN finals at DreamHack Summer in June.

CS:GO, Starcraft II, Fifa 13 and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition will be the four games in display, with the FPS title alone claiming almost half of the season's €52,700 prize purse.

The way the prizes will be distributed has not yet been announced by the tournament organisation, who have also confirmed changes to the qualifying system.

In CS:GO, instead of the teams qualifying online, there will be a total of eight LAN events taking place across Sweden, each one qualifying one team for the LAN finals.

The list with the qualifiers looks as follows:

#1 - Stockholm - October 23
#2 - Jönköping - November 22
#3 - Umeå - January 26
#4 - Stockholm - February 23
#5 - Malmö - March 23
#6 - Gothenburg - April 20
#7 - Norrköping - May 25
#8 and season finals - Jönköping - June 15-17

Teams can sign up for these qualifiers by going to the official Swedish Championship website.

Usually it doesn't means literally. €23,000 seems too much to restrict to only one country. Even it being Sweden, only NiP seems to be on high level. If this is only for swedes, they could give the money to NiP already.

"#8 and season finals - Jönköping - June 15-17" fnatic's going to switch to GO this year. Judging by the level of their players, we can expect a good team. It's not my fault you can't interpret stuff.

I can, but that's not the point. The point is they do not have a CS:GO team and everything your say about their future is speculation. I, on the other hand, am stating a fact.
