This CS2 circuit is one of EFG’s #GGFORALL program initiatives. First launched in 2022, this program aims to create safe spaces for women to compete in esports.

"Since ESL Impact’s debut in 2022, we’re continuing to catalyze change and redraw the lines of gender disparity in esports through our dedicated ecosystem," ESL Impact product manager Charlie Sirc said.

Sirc added that Dallas marks the place where the ESL Impact journey took off. Therefore, her team cannot be more excited to return for another round of CS2 gameplay.
