Recently, London has become a burgeoning venue for eSports events of all shapes and sizes. From the Gfinity Arena in Fulham to the Meltdown eSports bar in Islington, the UK capital is growing an eSports scene and is attracting competitors from all across the world.
This weekend from June 25-26, the eSports Championship Series will host its final showdown at the SSE Wembley Arena. The game in question is Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
For a sample of how things go down in the ECS, check out this match between Mousesports and NiP in a play-off showdown for a place in the finals.
Across the three days, eight teams will battle it out for the top spot in the ECS. As eSports games go, CS:GO has a pretty epic following. In particular, it’s possible within the community to bet in-game items against matches in return for more in-game skins and content. One particular friend of mine has been exceptionally talented in his prediction skills and has netted himself weapon skins with a total value reaching in the hundreds of pounds.
I digress, though. Tickets for the ECS finals are still available. The VIP packages are sold out but you can grab a two day pass from just £12.99. Not bad for a weekend out.
