Intel Africa Masters — CS:GO tournament dates announced

Mettlestate has provided more information about the new Intel Africa Masters esports tournament that will begin at the end of June 2022.

The tournament, which MyGaming previously reported on, will include regional open and closed qualifiers, which will take place across four regions — including Egypt, South Africa, Nigeria, and North Africa (Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco).

Each region will participate internally during the three qualifying rounds, which will be held online, and the final rounds of each qualifier will be streamed to Intel’s Africa Masters Twitch channel.

The qualifiers will determine the top team per region and the top four teams will be flown to Johannesburg to compete in the final event, which will be played and broadcasted live for three days.

Mettlestate has now confirmed that the competition’s schedule is as follows:

  • Registrations open — 17 June 2022
  • Qualifier (round one) — 4 July 2022
  • Qualifier (round two) — 29 August 2022
  • Closed qualifier — 17 October 2022
  • Grand Finals live event — 2 – 4 December 2022

The teams competing in the Grand Finals will battle for a share of a R450,000 prize pool that will be split as follows:

1st: R150,000

2nd: R120,000

3rd: R100,000

4th: R80,000

“Africa has consistently been left out of global events. We need something that exclusively showcases African talent. We have a rich pool of esports competitors who are hungry for competitive opportunities that rival that of international tournaments. It’s time we feed that desire,” said Mettlestate managing director Barry Louzada.

Mettlestate will post a registration link across its social media platforms and website on 17 June.
