Turner and WME IMG have announced Clash for Cash: The Rematch, a high-stakes Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament featuring ELeague Major finalists Astralis and Virtus.pro. The two teams will play in a live marquee face-off for a winner-takes-all prize of $250,000.
While ELeague has not revealed whether there will be an offline component to the event, a source close to the matter confirmed to Yahoo Esports that there will be plans to integrate a live audience.
Hosted in January this year, the ELeague Major set the bar high for competitive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive events. The grand final saw Astralis defeat Virtus.pro in an incredibly close 2-1 series of games that went 12-16, 16-14, 16-14.
