The CSGO Corporate League for companies has opened its doors to UK teams for the first time.
Organisers at Swedish tech company Challengermode say the move follows the league’s popularity in Sweden. It has now made the competition pan-European so teams across the continent can take part. Previously, it just took place in the Nordics.
The fifth season of the Corporate League will see its final take place in Stockholm, Sweden, on May 30th along with an esports business networking event for companies taking part.
The winners will receive a trophy and pick a charity of their choice to receive a €2,500 donation from Challengermode.
“In past seasons, people have often been surprised to discover how many former Counter-Strike players exist in their own company,” said Philip Skogsberg, co-founder and CMO at Challengermode.
“That’s why we’re excited to bring CLGO to a much wider audience next season as we’ve already heard from many companies that wanted to participate previously, but couldn’t.”
The Corporate League is an esports competition open to employees from any company that wants to compete in CSGO while representing their company. It’s billed as a team-building exercise for businesses.
Season 4 of the League wrapped up during the end of 2019 with the final between Swedish esports companies Strafe and Abios Gaming. It was live-streamed from Spotify’s HQ in Stockholm.
Teams can sign up via the CLGO page here. The standard cost is €849 per team, but an early bird price of €549 is available until January 31st. Entry includes seven tickets to the final paarty and networking event.
