T1 Entertainment & Sports, the combination of legendary esports organization SK Telecom and Comcast Spectator, is joining forces with production company FACEIT to host an Apex Legends tournament on Saturday, March 30.
The newly-rebranded organization is known for winning the League of Legends World Championship three times with Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, quite possibly the greatest player of all time, at the helm.
T1 has developed its forces outside of South Korea and signed a new Apex team featuring Haydin “Zerg” Gordon, Kurtis “Kurt” Gallo, and Brendan “BCJ” Jensen. In addition to its three-man squad, the organization also picked up “Sonii” and Kim “JuanK” Bong-sang.
The announcement of the invitational comes after the success of Twitch Rivals, the streamer-focused tournament that set Twitch viewership records last month.
The T1 & Faceit Apex Legends Invitational will bring together teams of streamers and esports professionals alike to face off for a $25,000 prize pool. Although the specific details haven’t been announced yet, the tournament will likely follow a similar ruleset to Twitch Rivals.
