Na’Vi win Gamers Without Borders $2 million charity CS: GO occasion|Dot Esports
Na’Vi tidied up the competitors at Gamers Without Borders, winning the competition and helping raise more than $2 million for different charities all over the world.
A mix of program matches and a little playoff bracket including the very best teams on the planet resulted in an exciting weekend of CS: GO action, with Na’Vi removing mousesports 3-2 in the finals.
The event, which is hosted by the Saudi Arabian Federation for Electronic and Intellectual Esports and produced by ESL, has already donated more than $8 million to partnered charities, like United Nations Children’s Fund, Direct Relief, and Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance. This has been accomplished through charity tournaments being hosted in numerous titles like Dota 2, Fortnite, and Rainbow 6 Siege.
Six of the leading CS: GO teams competed in the smaller playoff bracket, while Group Liquid and 100 Burglars played an additional show match to raise $250,000 for UNICEF and Direct Relief. The staying teams all contributed their share of the $1.75 million prize swimming pool to a combination of the other available charities.
Na’Vi didn’t lose whenever, announcing the group had decided to offer its $750,000 prize entirely to UNICEF rather than splitting it up. Mouz followed that up with a $500,000 donation to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
GWB’s continued $10 million charity esports tournament initiative is almost complete, with more than $8 million contributed in total. The last game being featured in the initiative is FIFA 20, which will include eight elite FIFA players completing for a $1.5 million charity prize fund from June 5 to 7.
