Electronic Sports World Cup qualifiers soon

Game Frontier is running regional qualifiers up and down the country very soon, with Counter-Strike, WarCraft III and even Pro Evolution Soccer 3 represented. Fancy a piece of the $210,000 prize purse?

Leeds-based Game Frontier will shortly be running the UK qualifiers for the Electronic Sports World Cup 2004, an annual gaming event with a total prize fund of some $210,000 (approximately €175,000 at today's exchange rate), the company announced today.

Qualifying rounds will be split into eight regional qualifiers and then the UK finals, the former taking place at regional gaming centres up and down the UK - aiming to uncover the country's best Counter-Strike and WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne players. What's more, a 128-player Pro Evolution Soccer 3 tournament will take place alongside the PC finals in Sheffield next month.

Following the regional qualification rounds, the top two WarCraft III players and two best five-man CS teams will be offered free accommodation for the UK national final, which takes place at the Magna Science Adventure Park on the weekend of June 12th-13th.

The finals will be open to anybody who wants to come along and watch, and there's the small matter of that 128-player knockout PES3 PS2 tournament to take into account too. Ultimately the two highest ranked teams and individuals in the three categories will win an all-expenses-paid trip to the world finals at the Futuroscope Park in Paris between July 6th and 11th, and the chance to compete with the 500-strong cream of some 250,000 worldwide entrants.
