We are pleased to announce that our League of Legends team will be attending the Esports Festival, in Gent, Belgium, from July 3rd-5th. The recently-built Ghelamco Arena, home of the Belgian football champion K.A.A. Gent, will be the venue of this exciting event, which will have professional League of Legends, FIFA and Fighting tournaments.
Eight teams will be battling it out for a slice of the €17,500 prize pool. With the likes of dignitas, Reason Gaming, mousesports and, of course, Gamers2 in attendance, this will certainly be an entertaining tournament that will attract interest from thousands of fans.
As the first offline event for our new team, we are also confident that this competition will be the perfect preparation for the upcoming Challenger Series split. Below are manager Joe “InnerFlame” Elouassi’s thoughts about the Esports Festival:
“We will aim to win the event and we will prepare thoroughly for it. If we don’t finish top 3 at least, we’ll be extremely disappointed.”
The prize distribution for Esports Festival’s LoL tournament is the following:
- 1st place: €10,000
- 2nd place: €5,000
- 3rd place: €2,500
