It has been revealed that Maincast with support of GG.Bet will host two online CS:GO events that will grant tickets to ESL events – GG.Bet Cologne Invitational and GG.Bet Chicago Invitational.
GG.Bet Cologne Invitational is scheduled for June 13th – 17th and will determine the last participant of ESL One: Cologne 2019. The tournament’s line-up will include eight teams. Two teams – Team Liquid and G2 Esports – have already confirmed their participation. Another five teams will also receive direct invites, while the last participant will have to make it through the open qualifiers. The participants will be split into two GSL groups, where they will compete for four tickets to the single-elimination playoffs bracket. The winner of the event will travel to Cologne, Germany, while the runner-up will get $5,000 in prize money.
GG.Bet Chicago Invitational will have the same format as the Cologne event and will take place on June 25th – 29th. The winner of the event will participate in Intel Extreme Masters Season XIV – Chicago.
