KOVA and hREDS join the Winter 2020 CS:GO Tournament

ASUS ROG invites KOVA and hREDS to Helsinki for the upcoming ASUS ROG Winter 2020 CS:GO Tournament, held on February 20-22.

The biggest CS:GO tournament in Finland this winter is taking shape as we reveal two more invites to the ASUS ROG Winter 2020 CS:GO Tournament. We are pleased to welcome the Finnish top contenders KOVA Esports and hREDS into the competition in Helsinki on February 20-22! Both teams have become staple names in the Finnish Counter-Strike community after venturing into the CS scene just roughly one year ago. Today they compete for the top spot in their country constantly alongside with the already invited teams HAVU and SJ.

The tournament is getting very interesting now as the lineup contains all four top teams in Finland after the clear local leader ENCE who are competing abroad during the event. As the first tournament of the year in Finland the ASUS ROG Winter 2020 CS:GO Tournament provides a great opportunity to measure the current form of the top local talent and get a bearing for the busy spring full of competition. In addition, there will be at least two more spots available for the local teams to enter the fray, handed out from the open qualifiers next week February 3-6.

Remember, two invites are yet to be revealed! Stay tuned for the full lineup reveal.
