Grosvenor CSGO Season 2

After the success of the inaugural epic.LAN CSGO Championships in conjunction with Grosvenor Casinos, organisers have confirmed that the tournament will return for Season 2 this spring.

Adopting a similar format to Season 1, the tournament will tour Grosvenor venues around the UK with LAN qualifiers and all PCs provided for the players by epic.LAN.

In addition, as part of Grosvenor Casinos’ commitment to community-level esports in the UK, they will also be one of the sponsors for the epic26 CSGO tournament taking place 7-10 February in Kettering which will see the prize pool boosted across all tiers up to a maximum £6000 if all 48 team spots fill up. 

Jon Winkle, Managing Director at epic.LAN explains, “The aim of the first season was to encourage more grassroots esports participation from players by removing many of the barriers we often hear about when players move from the bedroom to live events. By taking tournaments closer to players, along with all the kit needed and a low entry price, we saw many new entrants in to live esports in Season 1 and I can’t wait to work with Grosvenor Casinos once again to grow the UK community.”

Barry Lyons, Head of Events Experience at Rank Group added, “We’re delighted to be working with epic.LAN once again to build on the success of our first season. With our commitment to responsible gambling and our well-regulated casinos, we are pleased to support community esports for adult players. We’ve spent a lot of time analysing the Season 1 feedback to make the next season an even better experience for the players and we’re looking forward to the journey which will culminate on 5 May.”

The tournament will run from 2nd March to 5th May and will only be available to participants aged 18+, concluding once again at Grosvenor Casino Coventry in the Ricoh Arena.

Season 2 venues include:

  • Manchester (Didsbury)
  • Reading South
  • Newcastle-upon-Tyne
  • Nottingham
  • Cardiff
