ESL Viking Cup



About[edit]

Viking Cup was a weekly cup for Nordic players running from May 13, 2010 through 31 events until its cancellation in March 2011. It was played on Thursdays at 18:00 CET and was open to players based in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. Finals were battled out the next day at 20:00 CET, in a BO7. The entire cup was casted live with commentary English via livestream.com by Maven and TheBeard. Additionally, well known Nordic players made sporadic guest appearances to be interviewed or even co-cast some games on the show. The last event of each month was a 200 EUR ESL Viking Cup Monthly Final. The top 8 players with most points from the previous 3 Viking Cups would qualify, although the winners of the weekly cups would have an auto invite. The winner of the monthly final would receive 150 EUR and the runner up 50 EUR.

Cancellation[edit]

On March 10, 2011 Viking Cup was announced to be canceled with immediate effect due to fairly low attendance in the events.[1] At the time of announcement, the never to be 32nd Viking Cup had already been delayed for a week.[2]
