Berlin International Gaming (BIG) has won the biggest esports prize in its history, and it is giving it all away to charity. At the $10 million USD global charity event Gamers Without Borders, BIG beat out Brazilian team FURIA in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to take home $600,000 in prize money.

As the event and the prize money are aimed at helping charities around the world, BIG has decided that it will donate the entirety of its earnings to International Medical Corps, a charity dedicated to distributing COVID-19 vaccines to communities worldwide. 

The Gamers Without Borders event was announced at the beginning of June, and will feature competitions in Rainbow Six Siege, Fortnite, Rocket League, PUPG Mobile, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch, Tekken 7, NBA 2K21, and Call of Duty. All proceeds from the event go to charity.
