If you and your team are looking to purchase a teampass, well you’re out of luck. UMG Online sold out of them fairly quickly. The only obtainable way to gain a teampass now, is to either buy one from a team willing to transfer theirs before the lock date, or through competing in UMG Online tournaments that offer team passes as prizes, if there are any.
Spectator Passes are still available and limited. These spectator passes are only valid for this tournament. There are only several types of passes available for purchase.
- 1 Day Pass – $20: Will be able to use this pass on the day of your choosing.
- 3 Day Pass – $40: Spectator Pass that will be valid for the entirety of the event.
- VIP Pass – $120: This pass will allow preferred seating, access to the VIP lounge, VIP seating, and a UMG lanyard along with a Spectator Pass for the entirety of the event.
- Press Pass – N/A: Please contact [email protected] if you’re apart of a media outlet, like eSportsNation, looking to get coverage live at the event.
*Note that UMG will not be offering any sort of refund if you mistakenly purchase a teampass or spectator pass.
