Coolshop GGW 2020 will be a three day LAN event, with a dedicated FGC area and multiple FG related side-tournaments. Apart from FGs, there wil also be CS:GO, League of Legends, Fortnite, FIFA, Minecraft, Hearthstone, Rocket League, VR, and more at the event!
The event will take place on the 24-26th of January 2020 in Aalborg, Denmark.

We are happy to announce a prizepool of 10.000DKK (~€1300)!
Futhermore, half of the money from sign-ups will go directly to the prizepool, meaning that each competitor will add an additional 50DKK (~€6,70).

Travel & Accommodation
Venue Location: Gigantium, Willy Brandts Vej 31, 9220 Aalborg.
- Aalborg Airport is about 45min away from the venue if you travel by bus.
- Aarhus Aiport is about 2½ - 3hours away from Aalborg. You will have to take a bus to Aarhus station, and then a train, or Flixbus, directly to Aalborg from there. This aiport is especially cheap if you are flying from the UK.
- Billund Airport is about 3hours away from Aalborg. You will have to take a bus to Vejle station, and then a train directly to Aalborg from there.
- Copenhagen Airport is about 5 - 6½hours away from Aalborg. You can take the train, or a Flixbus, directly from the aiport to Aalborg. Even with the additional distance and travel time, this is still a good option as tickets to/from Copenhagen airport usually are a lot cheaper than the other airports.
Train tickets can be bought HERE - Check the box saying "Show me cheap DSB Orange tickets", as this will save you a lot of money. The earlier you order tickets, the cheaper they will be!
You can always check this site for additional public transport help and information within Denmark.
- You can take any bus directly outside the train station labeled "2", and a subsequent letter, directly to the venue (for instance 2A or 2B).
- You can take the bus labeled "12" to the train station from the airport, and change to any "2" bus directly outside the train station.
- Alternatively, the "12" bus stops relatively close by the venue, but it will be a bit of a walk.
General bus and ticket information can be found HERE!
