After a sweeping win last year at ESL One in New York, our own FaZe Clan CSGO team is set to defend their title against 8 of the world's best CSGO teams for $250,000. From the 29th through the 30th of September, Brooklyn will be rocked with the screams and cheers of thousands of gamer fans as their favorite teams compete in this ultimate CSGO competition. The third annual ESL One New York competition consists of the top 8 teams in the world will compete for a massive prize purse and that huge, beautiful trophy – plus all the bragging rights that go along with it.
In 2017, at the second annual ESL One New York competition, our FaZe Clan CSGO team absolutely destroyed the competition. They brought home that trophy and the lion's share of the prize money. This year, in 2018, they are looking to quickly run through the competition again and bring home their second straight win. There are two groups at ESL One this year with Group A consisting of Natus Vincere, mousesports, Fnatic, and Gambit Esports. Group B consists of our own FaZe Clan team, Team Liquid, NRG eSports, and G2 Esports. These double elimination bo3 brackets are based on the ESL World Ranking so that the competition is as balanced as possible.
The first match for FaZe Clan's team will be against G2 Esports on Wednesday, September 26th, at 2:50 PM EST. NRG eSports and Team Liquid also compete at that time and the winner of both matches will earn a spot in the Semi Final on the main stage at the Barclays Center on September 29th. The bo5 Grand Final will be on September 30th and will be streamed live.
Of course, if you live in the New York area, you can always snag tickets to the three day event and see our FaZe Clan team in action live.
