This Community focused approach is extremely close to our own mission as a company and is something we appreciate and relate to. We will be working closely with Red Bull in order to engage in the best possible way to the local Community and provide it with an amazing experience through the MEO format.’’
WHAT IS RED BULL MEO
Red Bull MEO is a global mobile gaming competition where players from 36 different countries will participate in online and offline qualifiers trying to gain a spot in a Live Grand Final to be played on 22 February 2020. The esports titles involved are Clash Royale, BrawlStars and Hearthstone, each of which currently has millions of active users.
With mobile esports gaining momentum, the Red Bull MEO is one of the most important competitions and its champions can be considered the best players in the world. Season 1 saw its grand final hosted at the Warsteiner Music Hall in Dortmund, Germany and was one of the most iconic gaming events of 2018. For Season 2 Red Bull has partnered with FACEIT in terms of tournament organisation and both the online and offline events will be hosted by them.
