Experience the world of eSports at the Gfinity CS:GO Invitational

For the third successive year in a row, EGX attendees will be presented with the opportunity to experience a premier eSports event, as Gfinity hosts the CS:GO Invitational brought to you in partnership with Omen by HP and Intel.


The Gfinity CS:GO invitational will be held live at EGX 2016, which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham from 22nd to 25th September and will feature four of the world’s best Counter Strike: Global Offensive teams, as they compete for a slice of the $100,000 prize pool. There might be some ridiculous wallbangs, humiliating whiffs, and who knows, maybe even some sneaky ninja’s; maybe some tears or jeers but definitely a lot of cheers.

In addition to a world class event, EGX attendees will also be able to immerse themselves in an authentic eSports experience, as the Gfinity stands hosts an exclusive ‘Play Like A Pro' exhibition on Thursday, 22nd September. Jump into our state of the art sound proof booths, show off your skills and dominate your opposition with the new opposition with the Omen by HP range powered by the latest Intel processors!
