CPL and ESWC team-up to advance pro gaming
Two of the world's largest organisers of gaming tournaments have teamed-up for the first time as the Cyberathlete Professional League and the Electronic Sports World Cup have offered qualification to France's best Counter-Strike team entry to the Cyberathlete Extreme World Championships in Grapevine, Texas. This is the first time a team has been able to migrate in such a manner between tournaments - and the hope is that it will pave the way to more successful esports events in the future.
The winning French team, decided in a qualifying finale at the Louvre last weekend, will also travel to the esports world cup event in Futuroscope in July. The winning French CS team will also win $5,000 in travel costs to journey to the CPL event in Texas, not to mention the prestigious notoriety of being the first team to participate in this exchange. More on all things esports as we get it.
