We are extremely proud to announce that GG.Bet has become the general sponsor of the premier Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament StarSeries & i-League CS:GO Season 7, that will take place on March 30th – April 7th in Shanghai, China and will see sixteen best teams from around the globe competing for their share of a $500,000 prize pool.
Both StarLadder and ImbaTV are among the most experienced and talented event organizers in the CS:GO scene, and it is a great honour for us to be able to support them in making this event possible. We are excited to see some of the best teams of the world, including Natus Vincere, FaZe Clan, MIBR and others, to compete for the $500,000 in front of the Chinese crowd. We are certain that this event will help to accelerate the growth of the local CS:GO scene.
Worldwide, the esports industry is growing at a blistering pace – total esports audience reached roughly 380 million in 2018, and more than 700 major events took place throughout the previous year. We at GG.Bet are determined to be vital part of this process and seek cooperation with both small and big players of the market. For example, in 2018 alone we signed partnership deals with such esports clubs as North, pro100, AVANGAR, Alliance and J.Storm, as well as continued our fruitful cooperation with Natus Vincere. Our company also sponsored multiple tournaments and even organized several events of our own, including an online Dota 2 event GG.Bet Invitational and a LAN CS:GO event GG.Bet Ice Clallenge, which took place in London this February. Both of them featured a $50,000 prize pool. In future, we will continue to support the esports scene by working closely with both tournament organizers and teams, so stay tuned for more exciting news!
