(NASDAQ: GMBL) (NASDAQ: GMBLW) (or the “Company”) and their EGL business have teamed up with The Coalition, part of Xbox Game Studios and the developers behind Gears of War, for the EGL Open Series, a nine-month tournament that will be run using the Company’s tournament platform to track player’s performance, rankings and leaderboard.
“We are extremely excited to add The Coalition to our growing catalog of tournament partners here,” said Esports Gaming League (EGL) General Manager Glen Elliott. “Our working relationship dates back to 2017, so the expertise on both sides will not only be beneficial to a continued partnership, but also to the competitors who will experience a top-notch event in all aspects.”

The EGL Open Series will run over the next nine months with three splits of tournaments. Each will culminate in a Split Finals, where there will be $7,500 worth of prize money distributed. Throughout the tournament, over $45,000 of total prize money will be up for grabs amongst the competition.
