ECS has announced that their second finals of the year, the ECS Season 4 Finals, will be played at the Hard Rock Hotel in Cancun, Mexico.
The ECS Season 4 Finals will be a private event, which will be played at the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun and will be broadcast on ECS's YouTube channel, where the organizers say viewers will get a "unique insight into players' lives at an event, will hear specific player perspectives and analysis on matches, as well as additional unique content."
Attending the event will be the eight best teams, four from North America and four from Europe, currently playing the ECS Season 4 league, and it will take place on December 15-17 featuring a $750,000 prize pool to be divvied up amongst those in attendance.
"As the first esports league to partner with the teams in a co-ownership agreement, ECS was founded with the goal of creating a player-friendly environment. This season, we wanted to host the ECS finals in a location that gives teams an opportunity to compete in the most competitively balanced environment we can achieve. These teams work hard all year long with matches, practices and training, and by bringing them to Cancun, we hope that ECS will help fire up their competitive spirits.”
- Michele Attisani, Chief Business Officer and co-founder of FACEIT.
ECS also announced that their fifth season will bring the tournament back to London, where it has already held two finals in as many years.
