ASUS ROG GameXpo 2016

On November 4-6 ASUS ROG Tournaments will bring esports to Helsinki GameXpo as the eight best Finnish teams will compete for $10,000 in the ASUS ROG GameXpo 2016 CS:GO tournament.

Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre will once again be home to ASUS ROG Tournaments for a while as we join GameXpo on November 4-6. GameXpo is the largest gaming event in Finland and naturally we don’t  want to miss the opportunity to bring esports to the heart of the gaming community. Let us introduce ASUS ROG GameXpo 2016, a $10,000 competition for the top Finnish teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, taking its place as the main program of GameXpo.

The tournament will be played on November 4-6 on a large stage inside the GameXpo event. We encourage everyone to come and see the action live from the audience stand with Finnish commentary. Tickets can be bought at messukeskus.com.

Half of the participating teams will be selected via invites while the other half will be determined by online qualifiers, which will be released later. The structure of the tournament is a single elimination bracket with all matches being best-of-3.
