Eight teams will compete in a six-day Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament for charity beginning Tuesday.
It’s part of Garmers Without Borders’ $10 million series featuring elite gamers vying to win money to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts worldwide.
Taking part in the CS:GO action are FaZe Clan, FURIA Esports, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Mousesports, ENCE, BIG, Fnatic and MIBR.
The CS:GO tournament is worth $1.5 million. Funds are being donated by both viewers and gamers.
The teams will be divided into two groups of four. Based on a double-elimination bracket, the groups will be pared to two teams from each group that will advance to a single-elimination playoff.
The competition will stream live on the Gamers Without Borders’ YouTube, Facebook and Twitch channels.
This is the second leg of the series, following a FIFA tournament.
