We are on the Road to Odense for the Pro League Finals in December and the Danish fans have already shown tremenduous support for the event. To celebrate the event even further, ex pro player pimp and ESL are happy to announce a Danish high school tournament in order to find Denmark’s CS:GO newcomers. Every high school in Denmark is invited to provide one team representing their university, academy, or college. All players of that team must consist of students of the respective high school.

The two finalists of the online tournament will be invited to the Pro League Finals in Odense to enjoy the semi-finals and the grand final on site through a fully funded trip to the event (travel & hotel night from Saturday to Sunday). And it gets even better! The two finalists will play for the title of Denmark’s best high school live on the Pro League stage on Sunday just before the grand final of the world’s longest running professional CS:GO league. The match will be streamed live as part of the show on Before the match, both teams will get an exclusive coaching from Jacob ‘pimp’ Winneche to get some of the experience from a former CS:GO pro player.
