The month of May ends with a bang in no other place than Manila.

If you’re not yet excited for the Manila Masters, then you probably don’t know yet what’s in store for you in this prestigious tournament. From May 26 to 28, top tier teams from all around the world will be vying for the lion’s share of the $250,000 prize pool. Being part of the road to the International, however, means that they are competing more than just the cash prize – the results of this tournament could even land the winning team a spot in Valve’s annual tournament.
