FACEIT partners with Caffeine for exclusive ‘ECS After Dark’

Production company and Esports Championship Series organiser FACEIT has partnered with online broadcasting channel Caffeine to create an exclusive overtime show for the duration of the ECS Season 7 Finals. 

Branded ‘ECS After Dark’, the new after-action talk show runs following the closure of each day’s competition and is broadcast on Caffeine’s FACEIT channel.

The show is hosted by CS:GO stalwarts Freya Spiers and Pala Gilroy Sen and features a cast of players and personalities, including Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund, Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, and Complexity Gaming CEO Jason Lake. The hosts will bring together a rotating cast of players, analysts and esports personalities for 45 minutes of insights, hot takes, and behind the scenes coverage in front of a live audience from The SSE Arena, Wembley. The show will accompany the full live broadcast of the ECS Season 7 Finals on Caffeine. 

Providing musical accompaniment to the ECS Season 7 Finals is rock band Honey Lung, who will also be opening and closing the exclusive two episode show. The 90s grunge-inspired four-piece will act as the official house band of ‘ECS After Dark,’ complementing the on-screen entertainment.

Additionally, the show fields live community questions from the Caffeine chat and FACEIT will be awarding one lucky chat member with one of the professional-standard gaming PCs used by pro players at ECS Season 7 Finals, signed by all the ECS After Dark guests.

Esports Insider says: The partnership between the two to put together an interesting, almost ‘Late Night’ style show is definitely a value add for avid CS:GO fans using Caffeine’s platform. Along with those attending in the live audience, the show is a great opportunity for fans to engage with their favourite players and personalities in a much more relaxed, conversational, and human way.
