Skyesports Masters 2024: Liquid, NiP, BIG and ENCE to attend $350,000 Indian event

A total of eight teams will attend the tournament.

Skyesports has revealed that Team Liquid, ENCE, NiP, and BIG will join its marquee event in India later this year. The four teams will participate in a seven-day LAN event - the Skyesports Masters - with a $350,000 prize pool. 

Four International teams to take part in Skyesports Masters 2024

Initially revealed as a franchised League, the Skyesports Masters 2024 will be a standalone event in India. With a $350,000 prize pool, this event has announced the first set of international invites. There will be two more international invites. With a total of eight teams, the remaining two slots will go to the winners of the Indian qualifier and the European qualifier. 

The Ninjas in Pyjamas recently disbanded its roster benching multiple players. However, with the Skyesports Masters 2024 set for April, the org has enough time to put together another lineup. The event has a double-elimination format allowing teams multiple chances towards victory

The Skyesports Masters takes place from April 8-14, which coincides with IEM Chengdu. IEM Chengdu runs from April 12-14. 

While there are no details about the European and Indian qualifiers just yet, Counter-Strike fans can expect more information soon. However, they can still expect more Counter-Strike action sooner with the Skyesports Grand Slam set to take place next month in Pune, India. This event will have two invites and one team each via the Indian and the Oceanic qualifier.
