Enjoy watching a bit of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive? Some of the biggest names in the CS:GO pro scene are making their way to the SSE Arena in Wembley later this month to compete in the Esports Championship Series LAN finals.
The European teams are Fnatic, Astralis, Ninjas in Pyjamas and G2 Esports and the US teams are Cloud9, Team Liquid, Luminosity Gaming and Team Solomid. I've always appreciated the wealth of silly names in esports.
All teams that qualified for the ECS finals will be competing at the Wembley-based arena between June 24 and June 26 with the aim of grabbing a chunk of the $3.5 million prize pool. If that seems like a lot of money, you're spot on, it's the largest esports prize pool to make it to our fair shores here in the UK.
Fancy going along? You can get yourself tickets on the ECS website
for just £12.99. If you fancy watching your esports in luxury? There's an MVP ticket that'll give you better seats and a scarf? That'll be £50. Fancy watching your esports in hyper-luxury? (Shut up, it's a thing.) You can get VIP tickets for £275 that'll give you a special seating area, special access to the stadium, a fancy food and drink area, and some ECS clothes.
Failing that, you could watch it all on the ECS Twitch channel
, I guess.
