Olivia R. May 12, 2020

WINNERS League Season 4 is bringing an all-new format and all-new features to Counter-Strike: Global Offenisive players across Europe and North America, along with the wild competitive action the CSGO community has come to expect from the series.

Vbet has become the official WINNERS League sponsor, and WIN has partnered with FeedConstruct to bring interactive features and a trustworthy betting platform to WINNERS League fans. 

The new invitational season begins May 18, featuring 16 teams from North America and 16 teams from Europe. These skilled teams will fight through a Swiss group stage with the goal of securing three victories to advance. But if any team endures three losses, they’re out. The eight best teams from each region will then emerge as playoff contenders, facing off in a single-elimination best-of-three playoff bracket for the title of Season 4 champions.

For many of the WINNERS League participants, it’s about far more than just the money. WINNERS League has long been a place for talented CSGO teams and players that aren’t yet at the very top level to prove themselves and earn a new place in the spotlight.

Over the past three seasons, WINNERS League has allowed deserving but sometimes overlooked CSGO teams and players to build a legacy and fight their way to the top tier of Counter-Strike. The competition only gets more meaningful every season as the competition gets stronger and the league's audience continues to grow. 

We've seen so much growth already, both with our participating teams and with our fans. We're excited about every division of play, including the great teams representing this year's invite division,” WINNERS League project lead Nick Gorbunov said. "It's going to be awesome."

With its new revised Invite Division format, WINNERS League Season 4 will be more rewarding to watch than ever before. WINNERS League can be followed on Twitter, and fans can stay up to date on WINNERS League news at WIN.gg. Live broadcasts will be available on Twitch with English broadcasts at twitch.tv/winnersleaguegg and Russian broadcasts at https://www.twitch.tv/kalashnikovmediatv/.
