In November last year, Shiva "Marvel" Nandy - CEO and Founder of Skyesports, had pledged that they will be investing a minimum of $500,000 USD in 2023 towards the upliftment of competitive CS:GO and Dota 2 within India.
FanClash had partnered with the tournament organizer for the last esports LAN of 2022 - AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0, which featured both CS:GO and Dota 2.
Building up on its aim to revive the game, FanClash has invited five teams to its invitational CS:GO tournament,
These teams will be taking on each other from 9th to 15th January with the finals set to take place on the last day from 17:00 onwards, winners walking away with INR 65,000 while the runners-up will receive INR 35,000.
Richa Singh - CEO and Co-Founder of FanClash says, "In the wake of esports officially being recognized as a multi-sport event by the government, we are extremely delighted to announce the launch of our premier Esports IP 'CS:GO Reignite'. Our ultimate vision is to make sure India wins the Olympics and Asian Gold Medals in esports right from day 1, the bus we missed in traditional sports and are still chasing.
