Skyesports Masters 2024 To Feature Seven International Teams And One Indian Team Competing For A Lion's Share Of The $350,000 Prize Pool

 

 

After organising the Skyesports Grand Slam in Pune from 14 March 2024 to 16 March 2024, Skyesports shift their focus to host their second CS2 tournament of the year, Skyesports Masters 2024. Skyesports Masters 2024 will be a seven-day LAN event featuring an intense CS2 extravaganza between eight international teams from 8 April 2024 to 14 April 2024.

 

Prior to the seven-day LAN, Skyesports will host a European closed qualifier and Indian qualifiers, and the winner from each qualifier will advance to the Skyesports Masters 2024 LAN event. Besides the regional qualifiers, Skyesports will invite six international CS2 teams directly to the main event. After all the eight teams are locked for the LAN finale, they will compete across seven days, from 8 April 2024 to 14 April 2024, to crown themselves as the champions of the Skyesports Masters 2024 and claim the lion's share of the $350,000. 

 

While boasting about their international plans in the CS2 2024 roadmap announcement, here is what Sashank Bhandaru, Head of Global Business Partnerships at Skyesports, said:

 

As we move towards a truly global esports calendar for Counter-Strike 2 with tournaments throughout the year, we are looking forward to partnering with our existing anchor brands and working closely with new ones. Our roadmap has been planned to pave a way for long-term associations, bringing stability and investment to the Counter-Strike scene in India and beyond.

 

Skyesports Masters 2024 is the second CS2 tournament out of the six planned international tournaments for 2024. Skyesports hosted the first iteration of Skyesports Masters in 2023 as a franchised-based tournament with the LAN finale at Koramangala Indoor Stadium, Bengaluru, with Gods Reign winning the lion's share of Rs. 2 Crore prize pool.
