Ulrich Schulze, Electronic Sports League’s (ESL) Managing Director of Pro Gaming, wants to show ESL’s dedication with the popular tactical shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. To do so, ESL will be hosting the world’s largest CS:GO tournament in August this year. The tournament will take place August 22-23rd in Cologne, Germany. The venue, Lanxess Arena, can seat 15,000 spectators as they watch sixteen teams compete for an enormous $250,000 prize. ESL is funding the entire prize money as opposed to the e-Sports community. You can expect to grab tickets on February 22th.
