AMC Networks International Latin America (AMCNI-LA) and Temporada de Juegos (TDJ) announced the start of La Liga Pro, the only Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) event that covers all of Latin America with the Super Copa de America dispute. The competition will start on April 17th and will be available on TDJ’s Twitch and YouTube channels. The companies also launched a website on the TDJ web, with content from the Esports championship.
The Liga Pro will take place in two annual editions: the first one will take place between April and July, and the second will be developed between August and December. Participating teams from across the region will compete for a prize valued at USD 200 thousand. The 26 teams in the e-sports competition are made up of 130 players from different countries in the region. The competition will be divided between the Liga Pro Sur, which will begin on April 17th with 10 teams involving gamers from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay; the Liga Pro Centro, whose beginning is scheduled for April 22nd, and will feature eight teams with participants from Bolivia, Central America, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela; and the Liga Pro Norte, which will include eight teams with participants from Mexico, and will also start on April 22nd.
‘We are very pleased with the level that the CS: GO’s Liga Pro has reached. In TDJ we are pioneers in the Esports development, supporting both the organization of the tournaments and the professional development of gamers. We are also excited to start this partnership with AMCNI-LA, with the aim of strengthening the expansion of Esports in the region’, said Jonatan Cisterna, Director of TDJ.
AMCNI-LA and TDJ recently ran a strategic agreement to work together in the development of Esports in Latin America. In addition to working in the organization of La Liga Pro CS: GO, as announced last year, and producing content to check its development, both companies plan a next stage, where they will work in tournaments focused on Fortnite, League of Legends, Clash Royale, Call of Duty, and others.
