Alliance has been declared the winner of the El Clásico Fight Night showmatch, after besting Na’Vi, 2:1. The two teams competed for the €5,000 prize earmarked to be donated to a charity of the winner’s choice. Alliance will be donating their winnings to the Save the Children foundation.
In partnership with Betway, the El Clásico Fight Night showmatch was sponsored by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet Esport.
Although Alliance were the underdogs with 2.2 odds vs. Na’Vi’s 1.6 – the Swedish sweethearts edged out the Ukrainians, 2:1. Their victory also reset the win record between them back to even.
Casted by James ”2GD” Harding and Per Anders Olsson ”Pajkatt” Lille, the lighthearted showdown pitted the two world class rivals against each other to compete for €5,000 to be donated to a charity of their choice.
Alliance and Na’Vi have had a long history of rivalry stemming from TI3, when Alliance defeated Na`Vi in the Grand Finals, after five games, on the back of Gustav “s4” Magnusson’s “Million dollar dream coil”.
Most recently, the two teams went head to head in the second round of the Manila Major Lower Brackets. In front of more than 2.2 million fans watching, Na’Vi eliminated Alliance, 2:1. Their victory had put them ahead in their standing record of wins over Alliance. Heading into the Manila Major, the two teams were tied at 28 wins a piece.
