Bravado Gaming has made a name for itself globally with their astounding performance at the recently held DreamHack Open Winter 2018.
This was achieved in part due to their determination to be the best South African team to represent the country at international events. To this end, 'Project Destiny' was launched in collaboration with Alienware and Intel.
Project Destiny enabled the CS:GO team to relocate to the Phoenix, Arizona, from where they took a shot at the ESEA Season 27.
The project was established for a total duration of 12 months divided into two phases of 6-months each. The first half was for the team to adapt to their surroundings, practice and get accustomed to the regions meta whereas the next half would test their improvement as they would participate in multiple tournaments.
Bravado showed exceptional growth as they won both the WESG 2018 - Africa Qualifier and the DreamHack India Invitational - CS:GO along with a phenomenal performance at the DreamHack Winter Sweden where they were placed second and finally managed to qualify for the IEM Katowice 2019 - Americas Minor.
Though the team has worked really hard, showing exceptional progress while gaining a lot of recognition and fame, the organization seems to be running out of funds to fuel their stay abroad. Bravado is actively looking for potential corporates, investors and brands who share the same vision that the team upholds.
As of now, Bravado has declared that the CS:GO team will be returning back to South Africa at the end of January 2019 after attending the IEM Katowice 2019 – Americas Minor. But the organization will keep trying their best to secure further funding to keep the dream alive.
Looking back to earlier this year in February when we initially set of for #projectdestiny and the United States of America to show the world what we've got.— Bravado Gaming (@bravadogaming) 29 December 2018

For now, Bravado is hoping to extend their stay in the USA for another 3 months during which the organization can do its part to help the team while they don't miss out on any practice and tournaments.
In order for the above to turn into reality, Bravado has gone ahead and created a fund-raising campaign on Indiegogo with a set target of $30,000. Click HERE to contribute to the fund-raiser.
