The top four European teams and the top four American teams from the regular ECS-CS season will converge at the Arena and battle to be crowned Season 1 Champion.
We have wanted to work with The SSE Arena, Wembley for a long time, and the chance to have our finals at such a prestigious venue is something we’re very excited about.
