The duo (alongside their avatars) which dominates the competition and claims victory in Helsinki will be honored on the Red Bull maps for digital eternity apart from securing a prizepool that is equivalent to 50,000 euros in value.

Players can also win FACEIT points that can be redeemed for digital and physical items. FACEIT points can be earned by performing well in national and international qualifiers, so players need to practice via the Red Bull Flick Community Hub to develop their map knowledge!
