The Global Esports Federation (GEF) has revealed information about the Global Esports Tour’s maiden run, citing event organizer and tournament platform FACEIT as a key partner.

The Global Esports Tour will include Hearthstone, PUBG: Mobile, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive events in Los Angeles, Riyadh, and Dubai. Participants will vie for a portion of $500,000 (£360,880) in prize money, which will be divided over the three events.

At the present, Esports is attracting a lot of interest and involvement. Because the esports industry has developed tremendously over the previous decade, it currently has a massive following and numbers.

They are excited to host the Global Esports Tour in exciting cities around the world.

FACEIT collaborates with the Federation to produce each of the three stages of the Global Esports Tour, which begins on September 27th and concludes two months later. In addition to the prize pool, the GEF will commit an additional $500,000 (£360,880) to its Global Social Impact Initiatives, which will include a variety of social initiatives ‘in service to the world’s esports community,’ according to the release.
