CSGO: Twitch & FACEIT to create League twitch

Competitive gaming platform FACEIT has teamed up with hugely popular streaming service Twitch to start a new esports league, the Esports Championship Series, which kicks off on Wednesday.

Interestingly, the ECS will be the first esports league to offer teams co-ownership, similar to the way many traditional sports leagues operate. To that end, the ECS will be giving teams and players seats on the league’s governing committee, allowing them to have input on “regulatory framework, integrity, players’ welfare, holidays, and best practices to ensure synergy among the league and its participants.”

The first game on the docket for the ECS will be Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The 20-team league will be equally split between North American and European teams and boasts a $3.5 million payout for prizes and team financial support.

The first qualifying matches will be streamed exclusively on Twitch starting April 6 at 8:30 am (PST), after which the final teams headed into the league will be decided.
