2015 CS:GO World Championship Announcements
This year’s CS:GO World Championship is going to feature 76 nation teams and over 1,000 players as E-Frag and Hitbox revealed us.
The tournament will take place from May 18th to October 8th and will feature teams from each of the 6 continents competing for a piece from the prize pool of $100,000 which will eventually get bosted through community purchases.
Starting with continental qualifiers in Europe, South America, North America, Asia, Africa, and Australia, the tournament will end with the top 16 nation teams facing each other at the main event LAN finals at the Sava Center in Belgrade, Serbia.
Daniel Leberl, CCO of Hitbox had the following to say about the event:
“Last year’s European Championships and the upcoming World Championships bring something unique to the CS:GO scene. A true nations based tournament, uniting some of the best players from around the globe. Extraordinary matchups will be a regular occurrence, with lineups you previously only were able to see in fantasy drafts. It goes without saying that we are enormously excited to see all this action live and exclusive on Hitbox.”
