One of the biggest tournament organizers in the land, FACEIT, is finally coming to college. The brand announced three new brackets for CS:GO, Valorant, and League of Legends. Both the first two games will have "Premier Leagues" where the top schools will compete. And in the case of CS:GO, there's a $25k prize pool on the line. FACEIT already has a pedigree for CS:GO events. They have a litany of online amateur tournaments that it hosts for thousands of players. We talked to the Director of FACEIT about why it was important for them to bring their expertise in the game to college players.
