The $150,000 Gears Pro Circuit Mexico City has been delayed after natural disasters in the area.
The event was scheduled to take place on October 13 to 15 at Mexico City’s World Trade Center, but a series of natural disasters has forced Coalition and Gears Esports to postpone the event until early 2018.
"Over the past few weeks, Mexico has experienced a series of natural disasters including hurricanes and, most recently, a devastating set of earthquakes," said Gears Esports in a statement confirming the delay.
"Due to these recent events and for the safety of all fans, players, partners, and staff, the Gears Esports team has made the difficult decision to postpone the Gears Pro Circuit Mexico City Open from its original October date to early 2018. We are working closely with our partners to announce a new date as soon as possible."
This event was due to kick off the Gears Pro Circuit tournament, but this will now kick off later in the United States, taking off either in fall or winter.
