Sprout vs showmakerz Match Preview


Being the highest ranked team participating in the tournament, Sprout should be confident that they will be able to win their opening game and put themselves in good stead for the rest of the tournament. The Danish-majority roster hasn’t enjoyed much success in tier-two tournaments as of late, often finishing in the middle of the pack. However, the calibre of opposition at the 22BET Christmas Cup is not as high, so they should be able to achieve a greater result.

A tournament win just before the winter holidays, would be the perfect way to end the year and motivate Sprout to work even harder in 2024. Let’s see if they get off to a good start in their first matchup.


showmakerz’s are undoubtably the least known and unpredictable team at the tournament. The Swedish team qualified for the event by winning the Dust2.se POWER Cup, where they bested some of their regional opposition. Getting the chance to fight for a share of the $10.000 prize pool, and play against well-renowned teams, such as Sprout, is a massive opportunity for this lineup to gain invaluable experience and showcase their skills.

Nevertheless, there is little to no chance that they come out victorious in their opening game against Sprout. Although, some factors are working in their favour, like the fact that the opening games are all BO1’s, which tend to see more upsets than BO3’s.
