FACEIT have announced the dates and tickets for their debut eSports Championship Series event. ECS- Counter-Strike is their main tournament and the finals will take place June 23 – 26 2016, at the Wembley Arena in London, UK, with the qualifying matches taking place during closed sessions on June 24 at the arena.
The top eight teams from the ECS-CS league will come together at Wembley to compete for the the ECS-CS Season 1 crown. ECS – Counter-Strike is the flagship league of the Esports Championship Series, and is the first professional esports league to offer teams co-ownership, like many traditionally professional sports leagues. ECS – Counter-Strike has twenty teams, ten from North America and ten from Europe, and has $3.5 million in prize money and financial support. It’ll be a tough fight, and true fans will want to be there to witness it all.
Early bird tickets can be purchased at the AXS official website and the ECS official website. Early bird and VIP tickets are also on sale, though the latter aren’t cheap, at a hefty £275. This does, however, get fans special perks, such as limited edition apparel, fast track to signing sessions with teams, private access to the stadium, a lounge with catering and the best seats in the house! If that’s a bit too over budget, you can buy regular tickets for £12.99, or MVP ticket for premium seating and limited edition apparel for £50. Groups of five will receive a special discount on standard and premium tickets!
If you can’t make it to Wembley, the event will be livestreamed on FACEIT’s official Twitch channel, and to find out the match schedule and match replays, check out the official website. All in all, get those tickets while you can!
