Teams facing problems over payment of their prize money is not uncommon. However with esports and CSGO in particular becoming mainstream, these problems have definitely been vanishing. It seems there is still an organisation in play which is not paying its due amount. The organisation in question is Northern Arena, who have not paid out their Montreal tournament prize money. The winners of the tournament last year were Heroic and its been almost more than a year since they won the trophy.
Today it is 1 year since we participated @NorthernArena Montreal. We still havent't received any prizemoney, but they still do events? Time to pay the teams?

We urge the team to approach a lawyer and take this up legally as soon as possible. It is to secure the best interests of the players and the organisation.
