Hussar Cup 2023 is an upcoming Counter-Strike esports tournament and one of the first Counter-Strike 2 esports events. It was initially announced to take place in September but was postponed for two months due to its scheduling clash with the ESL Pro League Season 18.

The tournament has moved locations from the initially planned venue and has changed its prize pool, which is significantly lower than the originally planned. However, despite all the changes, Hussar Cup 2023 is a must-watch tournament for all esports fans and punters, as it’s one of the first events in history to be played on Counter-strike.

Here’s everything you need to know about Hussar Cup 2023, including dates, format, teams, schedule, prize pool, and are the best bookmakers to bet on Hussar Cup 2023.

Hussar Cup 2023 Teams

The team lineup for Hussar Cup 2023 was already announced for the tournament’s original date, but it had to be changed. ENCE, who previously accepted the invitation, now won’t be able to attend the event because Hussar Cup 2023’s dates now clash with the CS:GO Asia Championship, where ENCE are set to play.

However, the Hussar Cup 2023 organisers didn’t have to look far to find replacement teams. Six teams have been confirmed to attend the Hussar Cup 2023, with two more set to qualify from the two European closed qualifiers.

9INE, announced as one of the first two directly invited teams will be joined by Monte, GamerLegion, Apeks, BIG, and MiBR, which are the currently confirmed teams.
