Multiplay announce UK Masters league
Multiplay have just announced a huge addition the iSeries season, with the addition of a UK league to promote activity in the scene. The league will consist of eight teams who will qualify for the spots via four online qualifiers, with the top two teams from each qualifier grabbing one spot. This league has a whopping £12,600 behind it which will be split across the season.
The first £5,600 of prize money will be split up and paid to all teams that successfully win a map. Each weekly fixture will be a best of two with teams claiming £100 per map win. This means that teams that make it through the round robin stage without dropping a map will pocket a cool £1,400.
Once the round robin stage is over, the top four teams will move on to a double elimination knockout event which has the remaining £7,000 up for grabs, and will be played online. The two finalists will receive BYOC tickets to i58, and a hotel for the weekend, where they will compete in the offline finals of the league, set to take place during the group stages of the main i58 tournament. Fear not though, you will also get a free pass through the group stages of the main tournament sliding you right into the main knockout bracket.
Live finals prize breakdown:
1st – £3,500
2nd – £2,000
3rd – £1,000
4th – £500
Signups are open over on Multiplay’s Battlefy page, links and Multiplay’s full announcement can be found below.
