About URAL Steel Championship

The URAL Steel Championship is a large-scale tournament that can be referred to as the First World WOT Championship. Commenced in 2011, the Championship saw thousands of people from over dozens of countries clashing head on to be the best in a bid to represent their home regions at the grand Izmailovo Sports Palace in Moscow, Russia.

The name URAL steel was derived from UralVagonZavod – the Russian industrial giant largely responsible for the manufacturing of Russia’s military vehicles – was the main sponsor behind the Ural Steel Tournament and the source of bringing together over 200 players from all over the world to the arena. 

The URAL Steel Championship marks a great milestone in the history of World of Tanks for Cyber-sports.
