We're back hosting CS:GO events for the National Championship Series. An NCS Academy event featuring 8-16 teams will battle it out for prize money and NCS points! This is an ALTERNATIVE for all of us on the East coast that cannot make it to the NCS Major in Denver. You'll still earn points but not as much as the Major. And don't forget, the more points you earn, the more likely you'll be invited to attend the NCS Grand Finals later this year. We'll also be streaming the NCS Major for those who want to hangout with friends and follow along. There's still time to cement your entry starting now!

  • $50 per player from July 1st - July 11th (Early Bird Price)
