Flashpoint 1 is the inaugural season of the new Counter-Strike organization-owned league headed up by Cloud9 and Immortals Gaming Club. The season features 8 permanent members as well as 4 qualified teams competing over a $1,000,000 USD prize pool. The launch of the league also coincided with FunPlus Phoenix entering Counter-Strike.

The season finals were to be held in the Stockholm Ericsson Globe but were cancelled and moved to the FACEIT Studio in Los Angeles due to the increasing global spread of COVID-19. Following the first week of matches, the remainder of the league was migrated entirely online as a further safety precaution.
