According to a leaked recording (mirror) of a CEVO meeting, CPL World tour is in trouble again. Note, that the leaked conference recording, if seemingly genuine, would represent a private conversation of rival company, with everything attached to that fact.
"The only reason CPL did Q3 is because every other player out there is doing Q4 and they need to find a reason to be different.The full meeting can be heard in the link provided on the forum post. Which also covers other topics you might find rather interesting.
Mr Munoz has "officially" lost almost every single sponsor he has after his winter CPL. So, i don't know if you will even see a world tour. That will be questionable.
What happened at winter to make all their sponsors back off?
Well simply put, i will give you a quick update on this so you can understand this, its relatively funny. Erm, simply put you had AMD and ATi come in and you had BenQ come in as a primary sponsor. You had Pizza Hut come in as a primary sponsor. Razer came in as a sponsor, Plantronics. The reason most of them came in, simply put, was because Directv was going to be there. Pizza Hut primarily sponsored the event for the one and only reason that Directv was going to be there because they wanted TV media coverage for their money that they were giving to the CPL. Trust me they didn't sponsor Cal to have their logo on the Cal website
to sell 10 pizza's that's not why you pay $100,000. Any way when Directv pulled out, the only reason Directv pulled out, was because Angel wanted more money, wanted this, wanted that and p****d off the people at Directv. Then the people at Directv told them to basically to go **** himself and then they actually had their own little event. So on that note with Directv pulling out he did not tell Pizza Hut, he did not tell ATi, he did not tell BenQ or AMD or Plantronics. Every one of them spent all this money to get television advertising basically and it never came to fruition. Angel lied to every one of them. So, as of 2 weeks ago a little birdie told me, as a little birdie always tells me some things, that AMD and ATi have officially dropped sponsorship. Plantronics have officially dropped sponsorship. BenQ have officially dropped sponsorship. So maybe he was going to finance the world tour through Razer, but that's the only one that has stayed on.
Thats basically the deal with CPL at the moment. Angel is a cat, he has 9 lives. He has used about 7 of them right now and we will see what he can do, but I'm surprised their logos are still on the website. Though when Directv pulled sponsorship from him, it took him how long to pull the logo off of the website?"
Both CEVO and the CPL have been contacted for comment, neither have made an official response but the leaked recording has been confirmed to be real.
