Intel has announced at E3 that they are expanding their 15-year partnership with ESL for the growth and development of esports and also revealed an Intel Grand Slam for Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
The Intel Grand Slam will offer a bonus $1 million prize, awarded to the first team that wins four CS:GO competitions by ESL and DreamHack in a 12-month period. The prize money will be offered on top of the winnings and qualifying events include IEM, ESL Pro League, ESL One and DreamHack Master Series.
“In this next phase of our long-time partnership with ESL, we’re investing in the development of future esports stars, further expanding our global footprint with the Intel Extreme Masters circuit, and exploring fresh formats like the Intel Grand Slam that we announced today.” said Gregory Bryant – Senior Vice President/General Manager of the CCG at Intel.
If a team with three eligible trophies be defeated on the fourth Grand Final – the the opposing team will be rewarded with $100,000, as long as they themselves aren’t on the verge of winning the Intel Grand Slam title.
