Clash of Clans just announced that they would be holding the first-ever Clash of Clans World Championship at ESL One Hamburg from October 25 to October 27.
It’s been revealed that the World Championship will offer a $1 million prize pool, the largest ever for the game.
The game came out in 2012, but as you already know it’s still going great. For instance, back in 2018, it managed to earn $597 million.
The game has been a part of other esports events so far but this is the very first time that Supercell itself managed to brand the competition as its World Championship.
The community manager speaks
“The Clash of Clans community has been honing their skills for years, pouring in thousands of hours into the game and finally, the game team is so honored to deliver a championship-worthy of our dedicated community,” said Marika Appel, Clash of Clans community manager, in a press release sent to GamesBeat.
Appel continued and explained that “By partnering with ESL, one of the most respected organizations in esports, we’re excited to create a new way for our community to engage with and enjoy Clash of Clans.”
Venturebeat notes that ESL has been founded back in 2000 and it’s the largest esports company in the world.
They have been putting various competitive events on a yearly basis and these include the popular esports games such as Dota 2 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
