The week's esports fixtures: 30 April to 6 May
iGB, in partnership with Bayes Esports Solutions, is proud to present a regular list of fixtures for some of the most popular esports competitions, helping operators looking to expand into the esports market while the traditional sports calendar has been significantly reduced.
With action taking place across a number of titles and competitions, iGB has taken the information provided through Bayes' Esports Directory and narrowed it to cover Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Dota 2 and League of Legends, the sector's most popular titles. Each competition is ranked by the number of fixtures taking place in the week from 30 April, to highlight the tournaments with the most action over this period.
This week the WePlay! Pushka League Season 1, an online tournament for Dota 2, tops the list, with 23 fixtures in the coming seven days. The event, sponsored by betting and gaming operator Parimatch, began on 23 April, and runs to 12 May, with 14 teams from Europe competing for a $250,000 prize. By 6 May, the top four teams will advance to the play-off stage, which runs from 7 to 11 May.
Next up is the ESEA Premier Division Season 34 North America, a CS:GO league that began on 27 April, and concludes on 21 July. This week there are 21 matches taking place in the division. A series of events organised by tournament organiser ESL follow, all for CS:GO, including the European and CIS legs of its Road to Rio series.
