While browsing the ever-growing South African CS:GO Facebook page, we came across the Fairgaming Charity Cup for local CS:GO fans and teams to enjoy. This local cup will kick off at the end of August, and it’s all in the name of charity. Here’s what you need to know.

Fairgaming Charity Cup details

The Fairgaming Charity Cup starts on 31st August. You can check out the Fairgaming Charity Cup website, and if you would like to register, you can send an email to: info@fairgaming.io

 

Registrations cost R50 per player, so R250 per team. There’s a total of 16 team spots available, and at the time of writing, there are still a few spots left.

 

The money raised will go to the winning team’s charity of choice.

The organizer explains:

“We aim to provide complete transparency on the prize money and any other money raised going to the winning charity including bank statements and proof of transfer.”

 

On the Fairgaming Charity Cup page, the organizer has suggested a number of charities as per the image below.

 

 

Teams can also decide to support any other legitimate, South African charity.
