As part of our commitment to make this the best Halo tournament ever, the top 4 highest seeded teams from the 4 online qualification cups in the weeks prior to the LAN event will get paid travel and accommodation to the event. Also, Halo will be releasing AR and Magnum skins to represent each country competing. This will mean that UK players can don the Union Jack flag while competing on an international stage.

Broadcasting live from the Gfinity Esports Arena, the competition will feature some of the best talent in Europe. Will we see the highest ever European placed team, Infused, walk away with the title again or will a newcomer take the crown?
