Elisa Masters is back in Espoo! Last year (2022) the event established its position as a notable event in the Counter-Strike competitive calendar, and as Finland’s biggest esports event ever.

Elisa Masters Espoo 2022 received overflowing praise as a stage for high-level esports competition, with ENCE, BIG, FNATIC, Astralis, Complexity, HAVU, Sprout, Bad News Eagles, HEET, GamerLegion, SAW and 500 competing for the grand price of $200,000.

After a nearly flawless run at the event, losing only one map to Complexity in the Group Stage, FNATIC took the trophy and celebrated victory over BIG in the Grand Final.

The tournament will be held at Espoo Metro Arena, in the vibrant city of Espoo, the first city in Finland to employ an esports coordinator for the city itself. Espoo is aligning itself to become the Esports Capital of Finland, and we want to be part of it by bringing the greatest teams to its doorstep. The City of Espoo, known for its vibrant and tech-savvy community, is looking forward to organizing a groundbreaking esports event in co-operation with Elisa. The co-operation emphasizes the city’s commitment to promoting technology, innovation, and a dynamic environment for esports enthusiasts and consumers.

“Esports is an important part of digital culture and the spearhead of game culture. For Espoo, it is important not only to have a successful and communal experience in the event itself, but also to reach a wide player community and create links for players to esports clubs, education and working life. This is part of our work to develop the gaming industry cluster in Espoo.”
