Allied Esports and Esports Entertainment Group will reportedly be teaming up together to cap off the Summer with a €50,000 CS:GO tournament known as the VIE.gg Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Legends Series. The event, which will be held exclusively online, will commence August 31 and will see 12 European teams go head-to-head.
Frank Ng, CEO of Allied Esports said: ""We believe that esports tournaments should not just be fun for participants, but also have the ability to help sponsors achieve their business goals, and our knowhow and portfolio of esports brands, arenas, mobile trucks and studios uniquely meet that need in today's ecosystem".
Esports Entertainment Group's Magnus Leppaniemi also stated: "We're excited to play a role in providing a platform for smaller teams to compete for prize money. While the largest esports teams earned tens of millions of dollars in prize money last year, there are hundreds of smaller teams that get excluded from the flagship competitions. The VIE.gg CS:GO Legend Series is our first effort at working to fill this void, and we look forward to getting involved in more events like this moving forward".
