For them, this year’s season is a significant one as it is the largest ZOTAC Cup Masters Global Tournament marking a 3-year anniversary; it followed the success of ZOTAC Cup Masters DotA 2 and ZOTAC Cup Masters: Starcraft Remastered in 2017.
The sponsors and organizers will throw up a massive $300,000 prize pool for the ZOTAC Cup Masters CSGO Grand Finals Tournament. From March and June, the tournament will have online qualifying matches across the globe including major regions such as Asia, Europe and the US.
