The Legends Stage of the CS:GO FACEIT tournament concluded this weekend, with Hellraisers, FaZe Clan and MIBR booking their spots in this weekend's upcoming Champions Stage finals.

They'll join compLexity Gaming, BIG, Natus Vincere, Team Liquid and Astralis for the tournament showdown.

The final stages of this year's competition will be held at Wembley Arena, London, where the top team will emerge victorious with a cool $500,000 in their back pocket. The tournament as a whole has offered up $1,000,000 of prize money in total, and represents the biggest esports event to be held in the UK to date.

Here's a quick overview of the brackets for the finals. The first quarterfinals will commence at 3:15pm BST on September 20th, with the remaining two quarterfinals starting around the same time on the following day.

  • BIG v Natus Vincere (20th September - 3:15pm BST)
  • compLexity v MIBR (20th September - 6:45pm BST)
  • Team Liquid v Hellraisers (21st September - 4:15pm BST)
  • Astralis v FaZe Clan (21st September - 7:45pm BST)

If you want to follow this weekend's actions there are a few ways to do it.

As we reported last week, broadcaster Sky Sports has acquired the rights to the final stage of play, and will be providing live coverage on its Facebook and YouTube channels, as well as on the Sky Sports website. There'll also be a special highlights programme broadcast on Sky Two at 11.30pm on the 23rd September.

Alternatively you can watch using FACEIT's dedicated streaming of the event on YouTube, Twitch and Steam.tv. You can also watch via CS:GO's in-game player.

If you'd like to attend this weekend's finals in person, note that weekend passes have sold out. Individual day passes, however, are still available at the time of publishing. Take a look at the ticket page of the official FACEIT tournament site for more details.
