About[edit]

ELEAGUE is a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive league that began broadcasting in Summer 2016 on TBS. On September 24, 2015 Turner Broadcasting announced that it was partnering with talent agency WME/IMG for a new esports project. [1] The league features 24 teams from across the world to compete in two 10-week league seasons annually,[2] which includes a regular season, playoffs, and a championship.,[3] Sources at Turner say there are no plans to lock teams into exclusivity, unlike the Championship Gaming Series, a previous attempt in 2006-2008 to bring professional video games to television in the United States. [4] Matches are broadcast live on TBS on Friday nights, which began in May 2016. [5] The broadcast is simultaneously available on the online streaming service Twitch. [6] Matches are played at the Turner Studios facility in Atlanta. [7][8] Esports programming is planned to be part of a revamped TBS. [9] The name "ELEAGUE" was officially unveiled on December 4, 2015. [10]


Turner will be partnering with online streaming services to bring additional video content. [11] One such program will feature the Renegades' move from Australia to the United States. Additional content will be available on Bleacher Report's Team Stream App. [12]
