Some of the biggest names in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are heading to the SSE Arena in Wembley later this month to compete in the Esports Championship Series LAN finals.
From the European side of the competition Fnatic, Astralis, Ninjas in Pyjamas and G2 Esports all qualified for the LAN. While over in the US side of the competition it was Cloud9, Team Liquid, Luminosity Gaming and Team SoloMid who made the cut.
All the qualified teams will head over to London later this month to compete at the Wembley Arena between June 24th and 26th. Their goal will be to grab the lion’s share of the $3.5 million prize pool, which will become the biggest eSports prize pool ever seen in the UK.
Tickets for the event can be purchased on the ECS site, with a standard ticket costing just £12.99. A MVP ticket, that comes with better seats and other extras will cost £50, and the luxurious VIP tickets that include everything you could ever want at a CS:GO event, cost £275.
If you can’t make it down to Wembley for the event then the whole thing will be streamed on theECS Twitch channel.
