CEVO is pleased to announce the opening of registration for the Counter-Strike: Source Pro-Am tournament. This tournament features over $3,000 in guaranteed cash and prizes for teams competing across the various skill divisions.

The regular event membership fee for this tournament is $5 USD per player. Players may register for this tournament without already being on a team.

Registration for Counter-Strike: Source Pro-Am tournament will open on Thursday, July 8th at midnight and remain open until Sunday, August 8th at midnight.

How To Register:

All players will need to register a personal CEVO user account to participate in CEVO events. If you do not already have one, click "register now" under the CEVO Members section of the website and follow the instructions.

Team Captains:

The Team Captain or Manager is responsible for registering their team for the event. Captains who have already created a team for another CEVO Counter-Strike: Source event do not need to create a new team - you can simply join this event with your current team. To sign your current team up for this event, login to your personal user account then go to "teams"->"view my teams" (or click "Manage My Teams" on the main account page). Click on the "manage" link corresponding to your team and then click "Sign Team Up for a CEVO Event".

If you are a Team Captain needing to create a team, login to your personal user account then go to "teams"->"create a team" (or click "Create a Team" on the main account page).

Once the team is created/registered for the event, each team member may join the roster by logging into their personal user account on the website and clicking “Join A Roster”.

Team Players:

In order to join a roster, your team captain must have already registered your team for this event. Once that is done, to join the roster, login to your personal user account and click "teams"->"Join a Roster" (or simply click "Join a Roster" on the main account page).

On the Join Roster page, choose this event from the drop-down menu, then type all or part of the team name and click "Find Team". When the search finishes, click the "join" button corresponding to your team.

When you join a roster for a paid event, if you have not already paid your event membership fee, you will be prompted for payment. CEVO accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, e-Check, or PayPal payments. All online payments are processed through PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay with a credit card through PayPal. If you would like to pay with a money order, please contact CEVO support for instructions.

To pay for a teammate’s account, please do so by logging into their personal account, or contact support for assistance.

Paying in Advance:

Players wishing to pay their event membership fee prior to joining a roster may do so at any time. Simply log into your personal user account and choose "join event" from the menu, or click "Register for an Event" on the main account page. From there you may choose the desired game and event from the options listed. Once your payment has been processed, you may join a roster any time prior to the start of the season as well as during roster unlock periods once the season has started.

Event Details:

The event will consist of two skill brackets, Amateur (CEVO-A) and Professional (CEVO-P).

The Amateur Bracket (CEVO-A) is open to all teams. This bracket is a single 32 team, double elimination bracket with the top six teams earning hardware prizes along with free entry into CEVO Counter-Strike: Source Season 11.

There will be two matches per week with Match Deadline Days on Mondays and Thursdays.

CEVO-A is designed specifically for new and experienced teams seeking serious competitive play.

The Professiona Bracket (CEVO-P) is application/invite only for teams that have earned a spot from the previous CEVO season or other CEVO events. It is comprised of one 32 team, double elimination bracket. CEVO-P showcases highly talented teams competing for $1,600 in guaranteed cash. There will be two matches per week with Match Deadline Days on Mondays and Thursdays.

The Professional Bracket is reserved for only very highly-skilled and experienced teams seeking serious, near-professional competition.
