With a prize pool that surpasses any other in professional gaming, a staggering lineup of 19 games and an impressive $70 million already invested, the 2024 Esports World Cup is poised to etch its name in history as one of the most significant eSports events to date.

To best explain the magnitude and excitement of the Esports World Cup, here’s a statement from the event planners:

“Esports World Cup aspires to encompass the most prominent esports games today and up-and-coming games. While we have already secured many game titles, we are committed to unveiling the full game lineup to demonstrate our equitable treatment of all game publishers and to communicate the vent’s true scale to the entire community. Stay tuned for the comprehensive game lineup announcement in the following months.”

Imagine esports having its own Olympics, and that’s precisely what the Esports World Cup embodies, including some top-rated esports betting sites

Location and Date of the Esports World Cup 2024?

The 2024 Esports World Cup will be a truly global event, hosted in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in July and August.

While specific dates for each competition are yet to be announced, we can confirm that the Counter-Strike 2 competition is scheduled for July 17th to the 21st.

What is the Points System for the Esports World Cup?

We’re yet to receive full clarity on the points system used at EWC, but those points will ultimately decide a true World Cup champion throughout all games.

At the Esports World Cup, every athlete’s performance counts. Regardless of the game they excel in, their points will contribute to their club’s overall ranking. This inclusive cross-game ranking system ensures that every team has a chance to shine and be part of the World Cup excitement.

The coveted trophy will allow the finest esports club in the world to declare themselves the best, and clubs that score first will also receive special reward money. As a result, teams that achieve success in different games have a strong chance of winning the Esports World Cup 2024. A team could place high in several games and fail to secure first place, but they can still be the EWC winner in 2024.

It was also stated that a portion of the Esports World Cup prize money will go toward this points system, which will provide further financial incentives for all participating teams.
