Three more invited North American teams will be announced in the coming weeks leading up to the event on 23-24th November.
There are open signups to allow anyone, whether they have facial hair or not, to enter into the tournament for a donation fee for $15 and there are currently sixteen team slots in total to fill. While the prizes are TBD, they will have a community focus and the real prize will be the stretch goals on stream. A clown suit has already been mentioned on social media as a $10,000 reward, but the full list of goals will likely feature even more clowning around for charity.
This is an online event but there will be on-camera talent for the stream including Rush B Media founder Ryan "RyanAtRBM" Friend, freelance caster Mike "DarfMike" Winnick and Chris "PluRO" Palac. Other CS scene talent and personalities possibly feature to cast or chat for a good cause over the weekend.
The CS:GO community has a long-standing history with raising money during Movember. In 2016, over £20,000 was raised in a campaign launched by Henry "HenryG" Greer, Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett and Jason "moses" O'Toole. Stretch goals saw Alex "Machine" Richardson get a Brazilian, a HenryG and Sadokist kiss, waxing and other antics thanks to the money raised reaching various targets. Another £20,000 was raised in 2018 with donation goals once again featuring waxing and pies, with other challenges like the 'polar bear challenge' thrown in for good measure.
