Best photos of the FACEIT Major New Challengers Stage

With the first stage of the Major concluding, we compiled the best photos HLTV.org's crew took during the first week in London.

Sixteen teams competed at the FACEIT Major New Challengers Stage for the past five days, with Liquid and NiP being the first two to advance to the next stage, going 3-0.

Joining them were, expectedly, Astralis, as well as Complexity, HellRaisers, TYLOO, BIG, and lastly, Vega Squadron. A big talking point of the stage was Engin "ngiN" Kor missing out, which saw Space Soldiers play with their coach Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran, as well as North being eliminated early, shortly after winning the last premier event, DreamHack Masters Stockholm.

The best photos of the New Challengers Stage, which were taken by HLTV.org's Joao "error" Ferreira and Josip "brcho" Brtan, are available below. For the more photos from the event, check out the full gallery.
