[blockquote footer=”Anton Oleinik, CEO of RuHub”]We are happy to announce our partnership with the #HomeSweetHome tournament series. Now we face a difficult challenge: to hold as many interesting events as possible in an online format and try to fill in the gaps from the cancellation of events as much as possible. Take care of your health, take care of your family, and watch the games of your favourite teams from home — this will be the best support for the esports industry.[/blockquote]
The main motive of organizing this event is to fulfill the gap between the tournaments that is created due to coronavirus outbreak. Two of the major events ESL Pro league and Flashpoint are already being affected by this pandemic.
