Wargaming today announced that registration for their International Ural Steel Championship opened today and will continue on until the end of the month. Sixteen teams from America, Europe, Russia, China, and Southeast Asia will compete on six battle maps for a shot at the prize purse of $77,000. The Grand Finals will take place on September 15th – 16th at CSKA Sport Arena in Moscow, Russia.

The tournament is organized by Wargaming in partnership with UralVagonZavod, one of the largest scientific and industrial complexes in Russia and the largest tank manufacturer in the world and in association with the Russian Cyber-sport Federation. The first Ural Steel Championship was held last year, forming a digital warzone for 40,000 players from nearly 30 countries.
