There’s lots of great things to enjoy at the IEM Rio 2022 Major, and not just some of the best CSGO esports competition you can find anywhere in the world.

With plenty of activities on the fringes of the main tournament there was some exciting news from GG.Bet and CSGO super-team Team Vitality who announced that they were teaming up to give their international fans a chance to win prizes, interact with team members and more aboard their Team Vitality Metality Fan Fest Bus and the GG.Bet Metality City Tour Bus.

Fan-Forward Activations

The announcement made in Paris yesterday revealed that GG.Bet Esports and Team Vitality would work together on the venture which will see the winners of the ESL Pro League Season 16 head out into the city of Rio de Janeiro.

On the trip, the Team Vitality CS:GO team members will hand out a number of goodies, as well as being able to autograph a wide range of items.

The GG.Bet x Metality City Tour Bus, will aim to introduce many new natives of Rio to the Team Vitality and GG.Bet brands, in the hope of landing activations and fostering a positive relationship between the members of Rio and both companies.

All of Team Vitality’s Season 16 winning team will be on the bus; Dan ‘apEX’ Madesclaire, Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen, Emil “Magisk” Reif and Lotan “Spinx” Giladi, which will head out into the city of Rio on the 4th November.

The team will then continue their participation in the IEM Rio 2022 Major in the hope of replicating their Pro League Season 16 success earlier in the year.

Stationary Team Bus Outside The Arena

In addition to the City tour on November 4th, the Team Vitality Metality Fan Fest Bus will be parked outside the Jeuness Arena between November 10th and November 13th.

The bus will be open to fans to come aboard and get their hands on a variety of Team Vitality items, as well as being able to play a series of guitar-based games, and also across games on Networked PCs.

While Team Vitality will be looking to gain exposure for the team in the burgeoning Brazilian esports market, their betting site partner will be hoping that this will also lead to many more citizens of Rio to open a GG.Bet account.

Challengers Stage Nears An End

Before that, Team Vitality will be in action today as they face a crucial Round 5 Match up against OG in the Round 5 Matches in the Challengers stage.

Five teams out of the eight that will make it into the Legends Phase are already known with MOUZ, Bad News Eagles, BIG, Outsiders and FURIA Esports all confirmed as progressing.

Team Vitality face OG in a must-win game if they are to move on with the winner progressing and the loser eliminated. Other key games taking place today include Fnatic facing 9z and Team GamerLegion facing Cloud 9.

Certainly, Team Vitality members will be hoping to enjoy their Fan Fest days on the bus, while still a part of the competition.
