The sun is shining, weather is getting hot and things are heating up again in the betFIRST Elite Series: Counter-Strike, because the Summer Split is here! In the Spring Split eClub Brugge dominated, but with a few roster changes and new players the other teams are not going to roll over and give them the title again in this Summer Split.
Especially with that spot in the European Championship – the shortest route for a Benelux team to qualify for BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2022 – on the line for the winner of the group stage. The fight is on and we can’t wait to see who wins!
The competition is made up of a Spring Split and a Summer Split. Each Split consists of an online Single Round Robin (best-of-two) played over a 7 week period (all teams play in Week 1, but each team has 2 weeks free out of the remaining weeks), concluded with 3 weeks of King-of-the-Hill style Play-offs.
Per Split (€7,500)
All games will be broadcast live in Dutch and French and replays of the matches will be available as well.

After a thrilling first season, the Elite Series: Counter-Strike is back with a vengeance! Last season eClub Brugge dominated both splits, coming out on top in the Spring and Summer Split, making them the big favourites for the Championship Finals. It was however LowLandLions that capped of our first season with a win in the Championship Finals.
Join the Force and Sector One had a more difficult season, but managed to save their skins by surviving the relegation games. Can they stay clear of the Promotion/Relegation games this year?
The first games of the new season will be played on 10 February, with the Spring Split lasting until 14 April. Matches will be played every Thursday. The Summer Split will be played between 14 July and 15 September.
During that time the teams will be fighting for a total prize pool of €15,000! Last year eClub Brugge took home the biggest chunk, but we have a feeling some teams will be trying to change that.
We wish all teams and players all the luck and may the best team win.
