A new kid on the block! Who the heck are the Birkirkara Tigers? Stop wondering! This newly formed team from Malta is hyped to join the very first City League season, as it is kicking off in just a few weeks time. Can the Tigers from Malta stand up in group B and take the lead? Let’s check out the Maltese CS:GO scene and the venue!
Malta Counter-Strike scene
When it comes to Malta and CS:GO, only one name is recognized among many: Liam ‘Malta’ Schembri chose the best name ever to represent his best 50% for the rest of his CS:GO gaming life! Altough Liam is half Maltese, half Australian, he is still to be connected to the Maltese gaming scene. With over $30,000.- in tournament winnings, his record is beyond steady! It remains to be seen if the Birkirkara Tigers can really put any hopes out of Liam’s victories, or that they figure the taste of glory out themselves. Either way, their home soil is well-organized and impressive!
The Gamers Lounge, Birkirkara
The amazing Gamers Lounge in Birkirkara will be the home base for the Tigers in the first City League season. The Gamers Lounge really is extraordinary, and it’s taking esports on Malta to the next step. This venue is not only an hyper modern area where players can play any game all day long: it’s also an official esports school, aiming to develop talent in the region. This, of course, connects really well with what City League is trying to achieve!
We are looking forward to see the Tigers perform in group B! Their first match will be VS. Infinity Budapest, on the 22th of July, at 15:00 CEST. Be sure to tune in to our Twitch channel to check out the action! Do you think the Tigers can claim the number one title in the first official season of City League? Or will other countries surpass them? Please let us know in the comments or join us on discord!
