London, UK – 3rd June, 2014 - FACEIT launch in North America with $1,000 Championship, Community Nights, 24/7 matchmaking & more.
After successfully venturing into the European Counter-Strike: Global Offensive territory, FACEIT is excited to finally take its first steps into the North American community.
Last Sunday night, during the FACEIT Spring League Playoffs, we announced our new plans for North America during a showmatch between iBUYPOWER and Netcode Guides. These plans entail special Community Nights each Thursday between 19:00 – 01:00 CDT. Players can join our matchmaking and win special prizes, such as FACEIT Premium and gameservers, and play with special guests, pro players and streamers. Of course will also host several cups per day, and matchmaking will be available 24/7, with servers in San Jose, Dallas and Chicago.
Besides this, we are also bringing the successful concept of the European CS:GO Championship to North America. We will be inviting four teams to the Championship Finals, while another four can qualify through our Sunday Cups. The eight teams will be fighting for $1,000 on 13 July.
The dates of the Sunday Cup qualifiers are as followed:
- Qualifier #1 (8 June) – Open for all
- Qualifier #2 (15 June) – Open for all
- Qualifier #3 (22 June) – Open for all
- Qualifier #4 (29 June) – Open for all
The four invited teams for the FACEIT NA Championship will be announced over the coming days. Please stay tuned!
