To celebrate the launch of Justin.tv's Gaming section, Justin.tv is sponsoring a tournament in conjunction with iCCup celebrities Brent and Kenny. The iCCup StarCraft Invitational brought to us by Justin.tv boasts an impressive $1250 in prize money and all of the biggest names in the foreign scene!
JustinTV Gaming will, over the next 5 weeks, bring you all the top foreign StarCraft action as the StarCraft players duke it out for the grand prize of $700 in what has been dubbed the 'JSI'. Each week, iCCup's own Brent and Kenny (of StarCraft with Brent and Kenny fame) will follow the tournament closely and bring you all the best footage, news and drama from the front lines, including highlights of each match.
As mentioned, Justin.TV's Gaming sub-site is providing this opportunity, and they appreciate the big gaming presence over at Justin.tv. If you have a gaming broadcast you'd like promoted by Justin.tv, you can follow this link.
