The Esports Championship Series, often abbreviated to ECS, was FACEIT's flagship Counter-Strike: Global Offensive league to replace the old FACEIT League which was discontinued after 2015. Launched in 2016, the league covered the European and North American regions with events scheduled around Valve's Major tournament system and offline finals hosted in various locations around the world. Eventually, the league would run for eight seasons before meeting its defunct as FACEIT shifted their focus towards Flashpoint.
