FunSpark and 5EPlay will host a European tournament between April 19 and 26 with eight teams and $250,000 on the line, it was announced on Saturday. The online competition will replace the FunSpark ULTI LAN event in China, which had been postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Virtus.pro (World No.3), BIG (No.7) and Complexity (No.9) are among the invitees for the double-elimination tournament, which will also feature the top two sides of the European qualifier for the Chinese LAN, HAVU and forZe, as well as Extra Salt, who finished in third place in the North American qualifier (as Cloud9), behind Chaos and Ze Pug Godz, two teams that no longer exist.
HLTV.org knows that FURIA, who had been invited to attend the Chinese LAN, declined to participate in the tournament as they will not be in Europe when the competition takes place.
