WINNERS League Season 3 approaches as top teams set to collide
The talent pool in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is deeper than ever before, but rising stars don’t always get their opportunity to shine. One of the core goals of WINNERS League is fixing that by giving developing hopefuls a clear path to the top of the competitive scene.
WINNERS League has three divisions for talent at each stage of their careers. Rookies and players looking to work from the ground up have the chance to play against similarly skilled competition in the Starter Division, while players that have further developed competitively and are looking to make progress towards the pro level can step into the Main Division. At the very top is the Invite Division, which brings together established professional teams from across CSGO.
Winning teams in each division will have a chance to compete for a share of a $50,000 USD prize pool.
Strong performances allow teams to climb up to the next division in the following season. The WINNERS League Season 1 Starter Division’s first-place team, YetToBeNamers, returned in Season 2 in the Invite Division and competed against the likes of Virtus.pro, Nemiga Gaming, and Copenhagen Flames.
Competition in WINNERS League Season 3 will be even more fierce, but that means teams have the chance to make an even stronger impression than ever before. Squads such as INTZ Esports, eUnited, and Season 2 champions Swole Patrol will be competing in the North American division. Meanwhile, Europe will welcome back regular competitors including Nemiga and Team Endpoint, while adding new names like Espada and Epsilon Esports.
$30,000 will be distributed among pro teams, with both the North American and European Invite divisions each having $15,000 up for grabs. $20,000 will be distributed among Main and Starter Division teams, with division winners receiving the biggest shares. This means that no matter the level you're playing at, you have an opportunity to win big in WINNERS League.
Those who would like to get in on the action can read more on the FACEIT league page. Those interested in competing should check out the sign-ups for the respective Europe and North America divisions. Participating teams will compete across a seven-week regular season with playoffs kicking off following the holiday season.
Signups are now open and will close on October 20. Players that sign up on WIN.gg can receive a unique discount code to save 25% on league fees.
