#HomeSweetHome league with $320,000 prize pool announced
Esports data management company GRID has announced the launch of a new series of tournaments named #HomeSweetHome. The event is split into eight weeks and will have $320,000 total prize pool.
The organizers hope to fill the gap caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and the cancellation of events around the world.
Over the next two months, eight online tournaments are planned with 16 teams, each with a prize pool of $40,000. Winners will receive $30,000, while vice champions only $10,000.
The first teams invited to #HomeSweetHome are GODSENT, North and forZe. The list of participants is expected to be added in the nearest future. GRID will work with ESL to agree on a schedule to avoid overlaps with the currently ongoing Pro League.
Within the new league the teams will play six days every week - from Tuesday to Sunday. The first tournament will run from March 31 to April 5, and the final one from May 19 to 24. The organizers added that they plan to hold the final tournament with a separate prize pool between the winners of all eight weekly competitions. More details will appear soon.
