Unfortunately, we have to report you, that our team will not take part at the Intel Extreme Masters Season XIII – Chicago.
The tournament organizers have limited the time required to confirm the availability of a visa until July 10, while the forZe management requested two additional days to resolve this issue. We sent applications for a US visa as quickly as it was possible, but cause of the lack of time to confirm that all players have it, we lose the slot at this tournament.
Sergey Ignatko, CEO:
“It is a pity that it happend. We hoped that ESL would give us time to get visas. It’s a shame to lose the slot due to organizational issues like that.”
Recall that the team forZe got a slot at IEM Chicago, winning the GG.BET Chicago Invitational. After the victory, the guys immediately applied for visas.
