$20k Prize Pool
10k Series Pro Points
32 Team Limit

Our very first event, back in 2010, grounded our roots within Gears of War and Liverpool. 8 years later, we return to Liverpool with Gears of War in order to settle the score. Teams will once again compete for a $20,000 as they battle for the crown of European champion.

In partnership with The Coalition and Microsoft teams will have the opportunity to gain Gears Pro Points which contribute to the Gears Pro Circuit rankings whereby the top four teams are invited all-expenses paid to each Pro Circuit event.

The EGL Gears Open Liverpool will see a limit of 32 teams competing in a double elimination tournament, seeded by Gears Pro Circuit standings. All of the action will be broadcast live across the weekend on the EGL Twitch & Mixer channels!

Teams will need to submit their roster and associated Pro Points usernames in order to gain a seed for the event no later than 16th August 2018.

All attendees must be over the age of 18. However, those aged 16 or 17 may gain entry with a consent form signed by a parent or guardian (Download here). Full tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
