General info

Welcome to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, with LPL NZ Season 1 2022!

Tournament Information:
Heading into the new year for Season 1 2022, in addition to our main season of CS:GO, we will have another option for New Zealand CS:GO players & teams to complete across Open and Amateur Divisions for $1,500AUD in prize pool! Open and Amateur Divisions will operate as Elo format Divisions where players sign up and schedule matches pending their weekly availability.

Note that New Zealand CS:GO players can play in this event, as well as our main CS:GO event. This tournament provides an exclusive opportunity for New Zealand players & teams to play against local opponents and further develop talent under the New Zealand league.

All players are highly encouraged to re-read through our terms and ruleset (located on the right), and ensure they will be able to commit to the scheduling requirements for all levels of play.
