Vainglory8 London - London’s O2 will host Vainglory Spring Championship

The event runs from Friday 19th May to Sunday 21st May and hosts the top six teams from North America and the top six teams from Europe.

It will be the first time teams from Europe and North America have met live since Vainglory’s first World Championship in Hollywood in December. December’s tournament had a prize pool of $120,000 (£95,000) and we could expect something similar here.

The top six teams on the Vainglory 8-point total will qualify for the tournament. Fnaticwho has recently joined the plethora of big name organizations hosting Vainglory teams will be hosting the event as London’s official Vainglory team.

Tickets are available from just £10 (for three days) and VIP packages can be purchased for £70.00. Compared to traditional events at the O2, it’s just a drop in the bucket and a great added value. There’s free loot, and for those who choose to VIP, there’s personalized Vainglory hoodies, official after-party tickets, meal vouchers, and more.

We recently wrote about Vainglory pioneering mobile esports, and there are very few reputable organizations now that aren’t home to a Vainglory team. We just have to look back over the last two months where a variety of organizations got involved including Fnatic, Echo Fox, Misfits and NRG getting involved.

The O2 hosted the last year ESL Pro League Finals in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, where the best in the FPS world competed for their share of $750,000 (£595,000).

Now it’s time for mobile esports to take center stage as London hosts the best Vainglory world. Early bird tickets and further event details are available here.

Esports Insider: What are you saying? The best Vainglory teams in the world in ESI’s own backyard? We will be there – and we strongly encourage you to be too. I guess we’d better put on our Fnatic swag and get ready to cheer for London’s official team.
