“King of nordic is very special to me and I love it with all my heart. Having sponsors like Cooler master is inspiring and makes it possible to give amateurs a chance to grow and compete. Sponsors a side KoN has the best community partners and staff in the world and their passion and hard work is unique. We aren't competing with other tournaments with millions in prize money and never will. King of Nordic brings other values that i think is much more important.” - Says Christer “MrMouse” Körnbäck, Founder of King of Nordic.

COOLER MASTER

We have never had such a level of engagement and activity from a sponsor that Cooler Master have shown in Season 16. Every week they help posting, pushing and watching the broadcasts and we couldn’t be more happy to continue our partnership.

KING OF NORDIC

King of Nordic "KoN" is an open Nordic championship with national qualifier tournaments in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, which ends with a weekly final between the countries. The final format is "King of the hill" which means that the winning nation remains on the throne as a champion in anticipation of next week's challenger. The ruling champions increase their prize pool every week and present a bigger and more prestigious target for the other contestant nations to finally claim the “King of Kings” title after 5 consecutive weeks on the throne.
