Tarlac City council will be co-hosting a CSGO league in association with WASD Philippines. This development came after the organization’s heads Victor Zamora, Kenneth Saunders Jr. and Emmanuel Deang met with Tarlac City mayor Cristina Angeles last Thursday, Nov 10.
The tournament will feature a substantial prize pool and feature some of the top CSGO players from the country.
In what could be a landmark moment for eSports in Northern Luzon as well as for the Philippine CS community, WASD Philippines joins hands with the Tarlac City government in order to host the finals of a national Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) tournament in the city.
Taking place in Tarlac City this coming April 2017, the Tarlac eSports League will feature one of the largest CS:GO tournaments in the Philippines, with several of the country’s top teams fighting for a substantial prize pool.
CS:GO is considered to be one of the premier first-person shooter (FPS) titles in the world, with millions of players engaged with the game in differing levels of capacity. The Valve CS:GO Majors, considered to be the premier tournament franchise for the game, attracts thousands of spectators on-site as well as millions of viewers online.
More details regarding the partnership will be revealed soon.
