Following the success of the 2021 Season, the Global Esports Tour returns for its second season, with Dubai kicking off the 2022 Season of the professional esports tournament. The GET will commence this June 9-11 as part of Dubai’s EMG 2022 Esports Festival, organised by the Esports Management Group (EMG).
The GET comprises a series of competitions staged across key global cities throughout the year. Each tournament stage will showcase a unique esports title. The first of this year’s GET series will be played on CS:GO. The GEF has established a total prize pool of $1 million+ this season.
“With more than 500 million fans for our inaugural Global Esports Games in Singapore in December, the second season of the Global Esports Tour 2022 is set to be epic as players, athletes and fans return to live events around the world. We are hyper-focused on presenting powerful opportunities on the best stages in the world as the GET 2022 is locked in for our #worldconnected community to meet, play, compete and connect live in person,” Paul J. Foster, CEO of the GEF, said.
Following the recently concluded Expo 2020 Dubai, Dubai kicks off the GET world tour across key global cities this year and will be the first of a series of global esports events in the GEF 2022 calendar.
The GEF #worldconnected community will head to Birmingham on August 6-7, 2022, for the first-ever Commonwealth Esports Championships; and Istanbul 2022 Global Esports Games in December.
