WESG 2019-2020 will be massive with their prize pool

This year’s WESG CS:GO took place on March 2018 with a victory for the Bulgarian side Windigo. They won the grand prize of $500,000 after defeating the likes of MIBR, G2 Esports, and AGO Esports. However, the prize money has yet to be paid to the Windigo organization before they disbanded earlier last month, citing the delay of payment as one major reason.
