This is your chance to join our #ChicagoChallenge live at our ESEA booth and play in a 1v1 match against Team Liquid’s very own in-game leader Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella live at IEM Chicago 2019 at United Center this July!

here is how it works:

get a ticket

That’s an easy one! If you want to play in our #ChicagoChallenge at United Center just get yourself a ticket if you haven’t already got one for a chance to enter our you vs pro challenge!

have a reason

Tell us why you have to play against nitr0 and share your clip, picture, meme or motivational speech with us using the two hashtags #IEM and #CHICAGOCHALLENGE on social media!

choose a platform

Let us, nitr0, and the whole world wide web know that you’re up for the challenge! All posts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with both hashtags will have the chance to get selected!

5 is the magic number

Out of all incoming entries we will randomly select the best five and contact each winner privately with more info about the meeting location at United Center, the rules and more!


All 5 winners will challenge nitr0 in a 1v1! The rules: survive 5 minutes & get as many kills as you can! Every kill secures valid points which will bring you closer to v-v-v-v-v-ictory. GLHF!
