Each event will alternate between the EU and US servers and have individual sponsors. Each event has a varying prizepool between $200 and $500. Each event has designated casters for the early stages until the Ro4 where the games will be played, then cast from Replays by DJWheat and Chill. Currently the Team Liquid Open has run four events and has just started a series of Opens sponsored by TeamSpeak 3.
