We at LPL are extremely excited to announce the return of the LPL Pro CS:GO ANZ Invitational, proudly presented by Carl’s Jr.
Continuing from the success of the LPL PRO Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Alpha Invitational, this trans-Tasman tournament will see some familiar faces – such as reigning champions Grayhound Gaming.
Teams will battle it out for a prize pool of $10,000. The winners of the tournament will walk away with $5,000, with second and third placed teams taking home $3,000 and $2,000 respectively.
Playing for the prize pool are 5 teams from well-known ANZ esports organisations: Legacy, Tainted Minds, Chiefs, Breakaway and Grayhound Gaming.
Think you’ve got what it takes to take on the pros? You’re in luck. The 6th spot will be chosen through an open online qualifier. Teams from ANZ will compete for the opportunity to place as the final team and qualify for the round robin tournaments.
Registrations have now closed.
Congratulations to Ground Zero who have qualified for the tournament!
The LPL Pro CS:GO ANZ Invitational will be running for 6 weeks from October 4th 2018.
Qualifying matches will run from Saturday 22nd – Sunday 23rd September from 12pm NZT. (Please note: no games will start after 7pm NZT.)
