Relog Media, one of Europe’s top esports tournament organizers, and Roobet, the pioneering entertainment brand and one of the world’s fastest-growing crypto casinos, have partnered to bring another exciting CS:GO event â€“ Roobet Cup 2023 from Oct. 25-Nov. 2, running back one of last yearâ€™s biggest tournaments in the sport, with another S-Tier $250,000 prize pool event.
Featuring 16 of the top CS:GO teams in the world, including Ninjas in Pyjamas, FURIA, Astralis, 2022 Roobet Cup Champions BIG, and more to be announced, the tournament will run on 16 teams in four groups with the top 2 teams from each group advancing to the playoffs. Playoffs will be a single elimination bracket, with the winner taking the hefty portion of the $250,000 prize pool.
â€œRoobet invests in players at every level, from pro teams to casual, because we want to give everyone the opportunity to have successful careers doing what they love,â€� said Anthony Brennan, Roobet Co-Founder and Head of Partnerships. â€œRoobet met playing games, and we get excited every time we find a new way to give back to the online community.â€�
The first Roobet Cup, which took place in June of 2022, featured top CS:GO teams from around the world including BIG (1st Place), FaZe Clan (2nd Place), Cloud9, 9z, Imperial Esports, Eternal Fire and more competing for the $250,000 prize pool.

Roobet also creates custom Roobet maps that are released to the community CS:GO workshop every month.
