eSports are one step closer to becoming Olympic games. Gfinity, a UK eSports and online gaming company, just announced their third tournament, G3, will take place on May 24th and 25th, in one of the UK’s most prestigious sporting venues. Over $175,000 on offer between Dota 2, StarCraft II, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, FIFA 14 and Call of Duty: Ghosts Tournaments.
In 2013 Gfinity orchestrated two of the UK’s most prominent Call of Duty eSports tournaments. G3 looks to be even greater, from the money on offer, with professional teams from across the globe competing for prize pots of up to $60,000, the world class sporting arena, which was the first Olympic venue to open its doors on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, through to the number of titles available for spectators to watch.
Gfinity will open its doors to allow eSports fans to witness firsthand the high standard of professional gaming across five of the best gaming titles.
Paul Kent, Chief Operations Officer from Gfinity said: “We have always prided ourselves on creating professional sports tournaments to help grow the eSports following and understanding in the UK. G3 is the next stage of our plans, where better to emphasize the serious nature of eSports than in an Olympic venue.”
Tickets will go on sale at just £22 per day from Monday 24th March, 12:00pm GMT at www.gfinity.net.
