Statement from Suzzane Donselaar Manager of GX:
"For Team GX, we think it is a great opportunity to have our finals together with such a prestigious tournament as the Eurocup. We can hugely benefit from their experience in organizing a gaming event and they can benefit from us by us bringing some female competitors to the tournament."
Statement from Mads Ehrhardt Managing Director, Global Gaming League Europe / ClanBase:
"I saw it as a great chance to show that CB is very interested in getting more female gamers and by doing this with Team GX, we definitely support the female gaming community.
CB's challenge is of course that our activity is going on in a online universe, hence it can be difficult to verify that it is actually female playing a match but we are working on ways to overcome this.
So we want more girl gamers on ClanBase!"
See you there on 8th and 9th september !
