The last leg of the Global Esports Tour (GET) before the 2021 Global Esports Games is set to get underway tomorrow in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) city of Dubai.

Organised by the Global Esports Federation (GEF), the Tour stops in the UAE tomorrow and Saturday (November 27) with players competing in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

A decade on from its release, the game still gets tens of millions of monthly active users.

The first stage of the leg was last weekend to determine the top 32 players from the UAE in an open qualifier, with the top 16 progressing to the finals.

The winning team is set to meet seven international professional teams at GET Dubai in March 2022, with contestants competing for a prize pool total of AED1 million (£204,000/$272,000/€243,000).

"This year has been a year of many firsts for the Global Esports Federation," said Paul J. Foster, GEF chief executive. 

"From staging our first ever live tournament in Los Angeles, to our first live-audience event in Riyadh with thousands of spectators, GET Dubai wraps up this year’s Global Esports Tour calendar before we head to Singapore for our inaugural flagship event, the Global Esports Games. 

"We look forward to an even more robust calendar in 2022 as we reconvene in more global cities next year for the GET."

The latest leg in Dubai is to run alongside the next edition of GEFcon, to be held at the Global Manufacturing & Industrialisation Summit.

The Global Esports Games are scheduled to take place in Singapore from December 17 to 19.
