With the 2021 season set to kick off on January 18, Betway has put together an exciting matchup to get Counter-Strike fans excited for the year ahead with NiP taking on BIG in a best-of-five showmatch scheduled for Wednesday, January 13, at 16:30 .
The thrilling clash will feature an older version of Tuscan, a community favourite in CS 1.6, as well as Cache and Cobblestone.
The two teams last faced off at IEM Beijing-Haidian, in which BIG edged out NiP 2-1 in the group stage. This time around the Germans and Swedes will have less at stake, although an action-packed back-and-forth can still be expected from the European sides.
Commentating on the action will be NiP coach Björn “THREAT” Pers and former BIG player Fatih “gob b” Dayik alongside a surprise caster, who is set to be revealed in the coming days. The matchup will be broadcast on Betway’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
