G2 CS:GO team will be competing at IEM Oakland

We are excited to share with you the news that our CS:GO team will be heading to IEM Oakland on November 18-19.

Just this week ESL announced that Intel® Extreme Masters is coming back to the Bay Area for the 4th year and G2 Esports CS:GO squad will also be there! The event will be taking place on November 18-19, at the Oracle Arena, home of the American professional basketball team Golden State Warriors.

In Oakland we will be joining 11 other world-class teams, all fighting for their share of a $300,000 prize pool. Two of our future opponents are already known – it will be FaZe Clan and Astralis. In total 8 invites will be sent out to the top CS:GO squads, four additional teams will qualify through a series of online and offline qualifiers open for teams from Europe and North America.

Last year we ended up in the middle of the table sharing 5th-6th place with Immortals. With our current strength we feel that in the 2017 iteration of the tournament we can aim for a much longer run with a great dose of excitement for our fans.
