ESL has announced that the Season 1 Finals for StarCraft 2 World Championship Series will be held at Gamers Assembly in Poitiers, France.
The top 16 players representing Europe, North America, Latin America, China, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, and Oceania will battle for supremacy from April 3–5 for a total of $217,000 in prize money.
“France boasts one of the world’s most concentrated StarCraft 2 communities in the world,” said David Kugelmann, Product Manager at ESL. “Gamers Assembly, which has been steadily growing since its conception in the early 2000s, was the perfect choice of location for the Season 1 Finals.”
