Registration for the cross-continent Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) tournament, Intel Africa Masters, is currently open.

Teams from Egypt, South Africa, Nigeria, and North Africa (Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco) are set to compete in what can only be described as the largest esports tournament on the continent.

The competition is organised by esports and gaming organiser and production company, Mettlestate, in partnership with a leading technology company, Intel, as they look to revolutionize the face of competitive African esports.

Mettlestate and Intel have collaborated with esports agencies around the continent including Gamr and BME Esports to support them in making this incredible opportunity a reality.

Each region will participate internally during the three qualifying rounds, which will be held online. The final rounds of each qualifier will be streamed to Intel’s Africa Masters Twitch channel. The qualifiers will determine the top team per region.

These top four teams will be flown to Johannesburg, South Africa to compete in the final event, which will be played and broadcast live for three days.

The top four teams will do battle for their share of the R450,000 ($30,000) prize pool. The following is the breakdown:
