ECS Season 6 set to commence

The sixth edition of the Esports Championship series is about to begin, featuring 20 teams across Europe and North America.

ECS Season 6 will kick off the online action with 10 teams from Europe and North America competing through five weeks of action. The teams will play in a best-of-one series, where each side will play against all others in their division twice.

The top four teams from each division will advance to the offline finals in Arlington, Texas, at the brand new 100,000-square foot Esports Stadium from November 22-25. The bottom two teams will have to go through the next season's Challenger Cup for a chance to return to the league.

ECS Season 6 is about to get underway

North and OpTic were the two European teams to secure their spots via the new Challenger Cup, while, despite placing third in the qualifying process, LDLC have been awarded the final spot due to GODSENT failing to submit a line-up on time.

The ECS Season 6 Europe team list can be found below:

The Danes of Astralis and the Swedes in NiP will kick off Season 6 at 19:00. The schedule for the first day of the tournament looks as follows:

Across the Atlantic, AZIO and Complexity reached the upper bracket final of the Challenger Cup and were both granted spots in the league due to SK Gaming forfeiting their slot. MIBR fought their way back and topped the lower bracket final to qualify, and Rogue will compete at full-strength, as Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend was brought in last-minute to lead the team after the departure of Casper "cadiaN" Møller.

ECS Season 6 North America consists of the following teams:

Liquid and Luminosity will kick off the action in North America, while eUnited take on Rogue. Below is the full schedule for the first day:
