Intel Sponsoring iBUYPOWER’s First Online Tournament: iBUYPOWER Invitational



February 25, 2015, City of Industry, CA – At iBUYPOWER, we can’t imagine the world without gaming. For over 20 years, our business has been grown from a passion for gaming. Today, E-sports is where that passion has led us, and we will continue pushing forward with our mission.

intel-logoiBUYPOWER is proud to announce an exciting new sponsorship with Intel for the iBUYPOWER Invitational. We are excited to expand and accelerate the growth of eSports with Intel’s full support. We are committed to being one of the most well-known brands in the eSports community and collaborating with Intel will enable us to bring the community historical eSports events.

The tournament will feature Counter Strike: Global Offensive, one of the most popular games on Steam. With 5 million new unique users every month, CS:GO has grown to be one of the most competitive games in eSports.

We have invited 8 of the top North America teams: Team Liquid, Counter Logic Gaming, Mythic Men, eLevate, Denial eSports, SapphireKelownaDotCom, Area51 and Ascendancy. These professional players will compete in a best of three format starting at February 28 at 10:00 AM PST and ending with what we foresee as an amazing final on March 1, 10:00 AM PST.
“We look forward to iBUYPOWER’s first invitational tournament and putting the power of Intel technology into the hands of E-sport enthusiasts,” Steve R. Peterson, Intel Channel Product Marketing Director.
