Gfinity has announced that The Sun has decided to support the UK eSports scene by doubling the Gfinity CoD Open prize pot this weekend to £10,000!

Gfinity said:
“As a way to support the grassroots development of esports in the UK and to help us unearth the next Call of Duty esports stars, The Sun has decided to back the Gfinity Call of Duty Open, our first ever UK Open event at the Gfinity Arena in Fulham Broadway in London.

In order to get as much support behind the up and coming Call of Duty players, we’ve made all of the spectator tickets completely free.

We’d like to say a big thank you to The Sun for getting behind UK esports and we hope to see you all online or in the Arena!”
