The South African esports organisation, ATK, claimed victory in the all-female Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) tournament, ESL Impact Cash Cup: South Africa. The online competition ran from July 9 to August 13 and featured some of the nation’s best female CS:GO teams.
ATK kicked off their competition with a 2-0 victory over RE ACCE and would continue to dominate in the weekly cash competition facing off against the likes of White Rabbit Amaryllis, VYBN, Royalty Esports and Powered By Copium.
The final day of the ESL Impact Cash Cup would see the South African team defeat VYBN and RE ACCE to claim the first place prize of $350, taking the team’s total winnings throughout the competition’s run to $1,050.
The ESL Impact Cash Cup was launched by the Esports Entertainment Association (ESEA) League earlier this year as part of the ESL’s #GGFORALL campaign to promote female Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO).
The competition took place in six regions, including North America, Europe, Asia, South America, Oceania, and South Africa, with a total of over 20 teams participating in the event.
