ELEAGUE, a tournament which smashed viewership records during their Major back in January, is set to return in September 2017. This will mark Season 3 of the league, and will follow the same format as before with the $1 million prizepool.
ELEAGUE announced the new start dates via Twiter with very little information to follow other than the title, which will be CS:GO, and the starting date on Friday the 1st of September.

Season one was won by Virtus.Pro, who have been a team to watch over the past year. Season two was a bit of an upset as OpTic took down Major Champions Astralis in the final. Astralis bounced back, however, and took the Major title back in January which was ELEAGUE’s first hosted Valve Major. An almost nine-month break is quite some time to be away, but ELEAUGE are going to pick up where they left off as one of the hottest tournaments in the world. ELEAGUE, with the aid of Turner, is one of the most professionally produced tournaments in the world which makes it easy to understand how they were able to break over 1 million concurrent viewers on Twitch during the Major final.

Athough Turner and ELEAUGE have been quiet with regard to CS:GO, their ongoing involvement in esports has been felt with the Street Fighter Invitational which is close to concluding. The next Season of the ELEAGUE is going to be one of the hottest as it arrives after an already incredible year of CS:GO.
