Team Top-G Makes History as First Indian Female CS:GO Team to Qualify for WEC 2023

Team Top-G has scripted history by becoming the first-ever Indian female CS:GO team to qualify for the global finals of the World Esports Championships (WEC) 2023. They emerged as champions of the inaugural all-female CS:GO qualifiers by defeating Purr-ple 2-1 in the finals of the National Esports Championships (NESC) 2023 organized by the Esports Federation of India (ESFI).

The thrilling best-of-three finals saw Top-G dominate the first map before Purr-ple made a stunning comeback in the second. The closely-contested finals ended with Top-G taking the last map by 19-15 in overtime with their effective teamwork and proficient attacking tactics.

Team Top-G comprises of ace CS:GO athletes such as captain Swayambika Sachar (Sway), Shagufta Iqbal (xyaa), Nidhi Salekar (Stormyyy), Dilraj Kaur Matharu (COCO), Aastha Nangia (CrackShot), and Priyanka Choudhary (ALEXAA) as substitute. Swayambika Sachar expressed her gratitude towards ESFI for providing them with such an amazing opportunity and uplifting women in esports.

The ESFI will now be organizing friendly matches for Top-G against distinguished CS:GO teams from other countries before the WEC 2023, scheduled to take place in Iasi, Romania. With a whopping prize pool of $500,000 (INR 4.12 crore) and at least 130 countries participating, the 15th edition of WEC is set to be the largest tournament to date.

The ongoing NESC is being streamed live on ESFI’s Youtube, Facebook, and Glance Gaming channels and is witnessing the participation of 275 athletes across four different titles – CS:GO, DOTA 2, Tekken7, and eFootball 2023.
