    What is the European Infinity Challenge?
    This event was born with the intention of becoming a reference in Europe, offering not only a satellite tournament, but an entire experience for the players. Our all inclusive package will allow you to forget everything and enjoy a weekend of fun, relax and a lot of infinity.

    What makes it different from other satellites?
    This event is held in an Aparthotel where not only the tournament will be played, but it will also offer the possibility for all the players to live the three days side by side for a total experience. This hotel has a meeting room of 400 square meters for the tournament, 300 square meters of demonstrations and activities area, private bar for the event, etc ... more than 700 square meters of event! All players will be able to stay at the aparthotel, at an incredible price. All inclusive board and with SPA! Had you ever imagined getting into the cold pool after being beaten in a game? Relax in the Jacuzzi chatting infinity with a player from the other end of the country? This can only be done in the European tournament.

    Is it just a tournament in a hotel?
    Absolutely not, we have many things prepared to make it a unique experience, lots of fun and interesting activities. The Tournament is also innovative in some ways, has a new format unpublished, a qualifying format *.
    - qualifying? So if I get eliminated, I cannot do anything else?
    - NO! Here ,the fun never ends. On Saturday ,all the players will play 3 matches, afterwards all the players qualified below the 30th position will get eliminated. But on Sunday they will have the chance to redeem themselves in a tournament of Aristeia OR IN ANOTHER INFINITY TOURNAMENT! It's a 2x1!
    –“I do not want to play anymore, want to see the island, or enjoy this amazing hotel!”
    - No problem, because it is not mandatory to play if you get eliminated. Did you come with your partner? Recover some "familypoints" by spending the day with her/him in the SPA or drinking some Caipirinhas. This option will appeal to the most competitive players, who can give everything playing and the most relaxed players because they can enjoy themost of a unique weekend.


    As we have commented, the European is an experience. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Let's get it right; If you keep reading you'll need to buy theflight ticket because you will not want to lose it;)


    * The qualifying tournament is still pending to fix some details regarding the tournament manager and the ELO, so we will not give you more details until they are solved.
