FLASHPOINT moves Season 1 play to Los Angeles due to coronavirus concerns ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

FLASHPOINT has announced that it will be moving Season 1 playoffs to Los Angeles due to coronavirus concerns.

FLASHPOINT has released a statement on Twitter detailing their reasoning for making just a hefty decision:


In partnership with the CSPPA, FLASHPOINT has decided to change our plans for FLASHPOINT 1 and will host the event entirely in our Los Angeles studio. This is a controlled environment that allows us to implement strong policies and best practices to protect the players and our employees, while also avoiding incremental travel and interactions with fans. Unfortunately this will also mean the cancelation of our playoffs event, planned for Stockholm in April. However, We remain excited about the future of FLASHPOINT and look forward to bringing the event around the globe in full force after the Coronavirus threat is no longer an issue.

This venue change follows a trend of event and conference reschedulings and cancellations due to the virus outbreak. 

The FLASHPOINT Global Qualifier in Los Angeles just concluded yesterday and saw BIG and Orgless advance to Season 1. Three teams have yet to be decided for FLASHPOINT Season 1FLASHPOINT Season 1 will kick off on March 13, 2020, with a prize pool of $1 million
