Led by Adam “Penguinmurda”, this team has been competing in North America’s top leagues for years and is currently playing in CAL-Invite and CEVO-Professional.
“CEVO loves to see new faces and new talent in this tournament. Being that it is an Amateur and Main tournament only, we hope teams take this opportunity to prove themselves to the community.”
Teams will be split up into 16 team brackets with the top 2 teams from each bracket advancing into the single elimination grand finals. Brackets will be sorted by conference to the best of our ability, and seedings will be random. Brackets, Seeds, and Schedules will be completed on Sunday, February 22nd.
Round One commenced last evening. You can view the full brackets below.
