WIN launches ALPHA SERIES in partnership with Challengermode, BetUS

Jared Wynne • August 11, 21:10

WIN, Challengermode, and BetUS have teamed up for a new competitive series aimed at Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans in North America.

The event series will kick off with two open qualifiers in August building up to a main event on September 2. Teams of all levels are encouraged to sign up and be a part of this great opportunity to compete on the official event platform. Each stage of the event will feature prize money opportunities and a chance to be in the spotlight on the main WINNERS League broadcast channel.

The Challengermode platform has been built from the ground up to give players the best possible experience competing online against like-minded peers. Challengermode’s goals of providing this competitive outlet to North American players is directly in line with WINNERS League’s goal of supporting local competition on the continent.

The competition is meant in part to further solidify the CSGO tournament infrastructure in North America, giving players on the continent more opportunities to play at a high level and to improve their game with high stakes on the line. 

The addition of BetUS will only further strengthen these efforts, as BetUS will be supporting this initiative with the aim of building up competitions in North American CSGO and providing avenues for players to eventually compete at the highest levels in the world.

Participants will need to register for a free BetUS account in order to play in the event and will have access to additional promotional opportunities on the BetUS platform as a result, making it an even better opportunity for those wanting to play and take part.

Each qualifier event will have two main event slots up for grabs, with each qualifying team receiving a $250 prize. The schedule for the qualifying events is as follows:

Open Qualifier #1 – August 19 at 7pm EST
Open Qualifier #2 – August 26 at 7pm EST

The ALPHA SERIES main event will be held from September 2 through 3. It will be an eight-team closed event with a $5,000 prize pool up for grabs, making it a great chance for up-and-coming CSGO players to show their stuff.
