Counter-Striken huipputurnaus Elisa Masters Espoo järjestetään toisen kerran Espoon Metro Areenalla marras-joulukuussa 2023. Tapahtumassa nähdään yhteensä kahdeksan huippujoukkuetta, jotka lunastavat paikkansa joko kutsuilla tai kilpailumenestyksen perusteella. Talvella pelatun Elisa Invitational Winter 2023 -kauden voittaja ja Major-huipputurnauksessa toiselle sijalle yltänyt GamerLegion, sekä parhaillaan pelattavan Spring 2023 -kauden voittaja tullaan näkemään Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 -tapahtumassa.

Elinvoimaisesta ja tekniikkataitoisesta yhteisöstään tunnettu Espoon kaupunki odottaa innolla uraauurtavan e-urheilutapahtuman järjestämistä yhteistyössä Elisan kanssa. Yhteistyö korostaa kaupungin sitoutumista teknologian, innovaatioiden ja dynaamisen ympäristön edistämiseen e-urheilun harrastajille ja suurkuluttajille.

“E-urheilu on tärkeä osa digitaalista kulttuuria ja pelikulttuurin keihäänkärki. Espoon kannalta on tärkeää paitsi onnistunut ja yhteisöllinen kokemus itse turnauksessa, myös se, että tavoitamme yhteistyön avulla laajan pelaajayhteisön ja luomme heille linkkejä toisiinsa, e-urheiluseuroihin, koulutukseen ja työelämään. Tämä on osa työtämme pelialan klusterin kehittämiseksi Espoossa”, kommentoi Espoon elinvoimajohtaja Mervi Heinaro.

Edellinen Elisa Masters Espoo -tapahtuma järjestettiin marraskuussa 2022, ja se sai ylitsevuotavaa kiitosta korkean tason e-urheilun näyttämönä.
