WIN.gg has partnered with FACEIT once again for WINNERS League Season 3, which is shaping up to be the league’s most dynamic and competitive season yet.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams from Europe and North America will be competing for a share of a $50,000 prize pool. The competition has three divisions, making it accessible for players of all levels, from up-and-coming competitors looking to work their way up the ladder to seasoned veterans wanting to make a statement.
“We're happy to be able to contribute to players’ development and to shine a spotlight on new and upcoming talents. As the league grows, these teams will only get more opportunities for greater exposure,” WINNERS League project lead Nick Gorbunov said.
The league’s Invite division has an impressive $15,000 USD prize pool. The team that comes out of invitational play victorious will be rewarded $7,000, with the second-place team receiving $3,000.
The main division has a $6,100 prize pool, with the winning team receiving $2,500. The starter division has a total prize pool of $4,800, with the top placing team receiving $2,000.

Gorbunov added that WINNERS League aims to improve its players’ experience each season.
