$280,000 for WCG Grand Finals

CHENGDU, CHINA -- WCG has announced the prize purse for the WCG Grand Finals.

The World Cyber Games has announced today that the prize pot for the WCG Grand Finals in Chengdu, China will feature $280,000 in cash and prizes.

While still a large prize purse, this year will have the lowest prize purse of any WCG Grand Finals in the last nine years. In comparison to the largest ever, last year’s event, at a total grand prize of $470.000, this year has a $190,000 cut in prize money.

For Counter-Strike 1.6, one of the biggest drawn events around the world, there is $80,500 up for grabs, in comparison to $102,000 last year. The top team will get $15,000 less than last year as a result.
