eXTREMESLAND Asia Announces the ZOWIE eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Festival 2020

by Juandi

ZOWIE eXTREMESLAND will return with its fifth edition starting on December 21 to February 14. Spanning across five Asia-Pacific regional divisions, the 8-week long event will feature open qualifiers and weekend playoffs.

ZOWIE eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Festival 2020 will have a quite different atmosphere from the last four iterations, with the competition divided into 5 APAC regional divisions, including Oceania, South East Asia, East Asia, Middle East, and South Asia.

eXTREMESLAND expressed that hosting the 2020 edition of eXTREMESLAND CS:GO was a hard thing to decide. “It was a challenge for us to decide on whether to host eXTREMESLAND this year. However, considering the health crisis, safety was and remains a primary concern.”


Hundreds of teams will battle for a US$6,000 prize pot split equally between 4 out of 5 regions. First place will be US$1,000, and second place is US$500. However, East Asia Region will be prized with ZOWIE’s XL2546K and XL2540K due to the currency restrictions in the region. Full details on the region & countries can be found below:
