ELEAGUE will take a trip back in time to one of the most iconic moments in Counter-Strike history when it features the Grand Final of its recent CS:GO Invitational 2019, which saw popular North American squadCloud9 take on the star-studded Europeans of FaZe Clan in a rematch of the ELEAGUE Major: BostonGrand Final. The brand’s three-part series will conclude with the final episode airing Friday, March 29, following live NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship coverage and original programming on TBS (approx. 10 p.m. PT / 1:30 a.m. ET Saturday).
The third episode harkens back to just over one year ago, when a notably different Cloud9 roster made its seemingly improbable run through the ELEAGUE Major: Boston championship. FaZe Clan, one of the most expensive rosters ever assembled in professional Counter-Strike, allowed the upstart Americans to pull off the ultimate upset during the Major in Boston, and entered the Invitational’s Grand Final with a score to settle. The winner adds another ELEAGUE trophy to their collection, along with the largest share of the event’s $150,000 prize pool.
ELEAGUE programming will continue on TBS with a one-hour feature show showcasing the best moments from its upcoming fan event at the NCAA Final Four Fan Fest – the ELEAGUE x Rocket League Game Zone presented by AXE – Friday, April 12, at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
