- Professional video game players, the so-called sports segment, have been experiencing a boom lately
- Vodafone, which runs its own championship, is also involved in this trend
- Vodafone Championship of the Czech Republic in computer games is just starting and there is a lot in the game!
Almost a million people in the Czech Republic already know electronic sports, ie professional video game play – and about a quarter of a million of them regularly take part in tournaments, states Vodafone in his press release. And the Czechs are successful in this segment of “sports”. One example for all: 30-year-old Tomáš “Oscar” Šťastný, who focuses on the computer game Counter-Strike, has already managed to earn over 300,000 dollars in tournaments, ie more than 6.5 million crowns.
The Czech computer player championship begins
Last weekend, the first set of final rounds of the Vodafone Czech Computer Games Championship took place. He competes in four games – Counter Strike: Global Offensive, PUBG, League of Legends and Hearthstone.
It is the virtual card game Hearthstone that already knows its winner from the first final weekend of November 6 and 7, which is Jaromír “Jarla” Vyskočil. He became the first player in the history of the Czech Republic with two championship titles. The top of the championship will come on November 24-28 at the Brno Exhibition Center. And in the game Counter Strike, where eight teams will compete for a prize of 500 thousand crowns.
You can watch the match online (on the Twitch channel PLAYzoneCZ) and live in Brno. In the past, there were tens of thousands of spectators on the spot, another tens of thousands online.
But why Vodafone?
The championship is organized by the PLAYzone agency, Vodafone has again become a strategic partner of the event. But why? The domestic operator is close to the sport. This is understandable, because quality online gaming cannot do without a stable and ultra-fast internet.
Of course, Vodafone solves this directly throughout the championship, offering a speed of up to 1 Gb / s. “No other company can boast such extensive coverage with such a high connection speed as Vodafone. All top players will certainly be more and more interested in the new 5G mobile network, which brings not only high connection speeds, but also low latency, ie fast response, which is important when playing. “ explains Radek Hanzlík, who works in the field of sports at Vodafone.
