iBUYPOWER CSGO & Overwatch Invitationals Backed by $21,000 Prize Pool

Posted on August 27, 2016

iBUYPOWER continues to show its support for the eSports community with a new tournament. The SI’s tournament series returns this fall with the CS:GO and Overwatch Invitational in September. From the 17th to the 18th, the top 8 teams in both games, as picked by iBP, will be competing for a combined $21,000 prize pool.

Intel, Microsoft, Western Digital, nVidia, and CEVO are all returning as sponsors for this event. Together with iBUYPOWER, the companies have raised $16,000 for the CS:GO tournament and $5,000 for the Overwatch tournament. This will be the third Invitational IBP has put on this year, and leads into the company’s grand opening for its eSports arena at UCI. The UCI venue will open on September 23 and already has tickets available.

System integrators IBP have yet to release details on any side events at the tournament, but past Invitationals have been opened to attendees in the Santa Ana area and run on-site raffles.

The teams also have yet to be revealed, but you can find updates for the event here on iBP’s site or on their twitter and facebook pages. And when it comes time for the event, you can watch the CS:GO event here and the Overwatch tournament here.
