Red Bull Coliseum is back with Season 2!
After the conclusion of the Red Bull Coliseum last year, which saw a prize pool of RM50,000 and three dominant eSports titles, Red Bull Coliseum is back for Season 2 with an even bigger prize pool of RM100,000 and two new game titles, FIFA Online 3 as well as Blizzard’s very own Overwatch. These two games will join the already stable roster of games – Dota 2, CS:GO and FIFA 17.
Having attracted over 1,100 players during its debut season, Season 2 is looking to increase that to over 5,500 players this time around in a total of five different countries around Southeast Asia, which will include Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines. It will be looking for 512 teams (2,560 players) for Dota 2, 256 teams (1,280 players) for CS:GO, 512 players for both FIFA 17 and FIFA Online 3 as well as 32 teams (192) for Overwatch. There will of course be regional qualifiers held in all five countries while the main event will be held in an undisclosed location in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
With a major eSports event of this scale, Red Bull Malaysia will not be pulling it off on its own as it has brought along various other official partners. MSI will be the Official Laptop Partner of the event while Logitech is the Official Peripherals Partner during the event and Digi is the Official Streaming Partner. Air Asia is also the Official Travel Partner while both Garena and Gamesbond are the Official Industry Partners.
