Week one of the FACEIT Pro Series: Apex Legends kicks off today, and as the first tournament officially licensed by Respawn Entertainment and EA Games, fans won’t want to miss out on the action.
Featuring a $50,000 prize pool, the tournament will be played over eight weekly events. It will follow a “pub stomp” format, where teams will compete for points based on their placement and number of kills in each round.
A total of 16 Apex Legends teams are participating in the event, and the list of competitors features some of the biggest names in esports, including 100 Thieves, G2 Esports, Cloud9, Dignitas, Gen.G, Misfits, and Team Liquid.
The live broadcast is available on FACEIT’s official Twitch channel, but streams can also be watched from the players’ perspectives on their own respective channels.
After today, the tournament will go on a short break until June 14 for the ECS Season 7 CS:GO finals.
