The 2016 edition of the Nordic Masters will take place this weekend, with 16 teams battling it out for over $14,400 in cash prizes.
Much of the CS:GO community's attention will be focused this weekend on ESL Expo Barcelona, but in Älmhult, in southern Sweden, there will also be an international tournament, called the Nordic Masters, featuring 122,500 SEK (~$14,430) in prize money.
Sixteen teams hailing from the Nordic region will be taking part in the tournament, which will kick off with a double-elimination group stage, followed by the single-elimination playoffs with the last eight sides standing.
