UMB/KOZOOM Survival with 250.000 €
Nobody should forget, that the UMB and KOZOOM in 2018 and 2019 organized 8 Survival tournaments with 250.000 € price money for every event!

2018 the UMB paid over 2.5 million (2.500.000,-) € to the players. Not bad for an amateur organization?

Now we hope for a powerful restart with good CEB and UMB events.
