WCS – France Nationals
From July 5-8, Paris will play host to the StarCraft II World Championship Series France Nationals, where the top 16 French StarCraft II players will fight for a $15,000 USD prize pool and three slots in the Europe Finals. The French champion is also guaranteed a spot in the Global Finals in Asia later this year.
The France Nationals takes place at the annual Japan Expo in the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center. Up to 300 spectators can watch the live eSports action, enhanced by an impressive 350-inch screen and a 10-kilowatt sound system.
A ticket to the Japan Expo will not only let you attend the France Nationals, but it will also get you into the Comic Con' Paris, which is running at the same time. Just one ticket for all the eSports action, comics, manga, sci-fi, fantasy, and Japanese goodness you could ever want! Opening hours are from 09:00 until 19:00, and prices start at €9 EUR per day.
See below for more information, including venue details, qualifier details, and a list of finalists. Nearer to the date, a link to a stream of the televised finals will also be available.
