Michele Attisani, CBO & Co-Founder of FACEIT commented in a release: “We’re extremely excited to be returning to the Esports Stadium Arlington again for the ECS Finals. The Season 6 Finals were a huge success and this year we want to give our North American fans a flawless competition. The venue is in an awesome location, it’s on the doorstep of the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers creating a natural buzz of iconic competition and fan focused atmosphere.”

Along with the return to Arlington, FACEIT will continue to work alongside broadcasting platform Caffeine to produce exclusive content throughout the season, including the ‘ECS After Dark’ show. The community caster challenger will also return, streamed exclusively on Caffeine; competitors are encouraged to commentate on recent Pinnacle Cup matches for a chance to cast the ECS Season 8 finals.

The event is scheduled to take place from November 28th to December 1st, coinciding with Thanksgiving weekend, giving fans the opportunities to partake in the local festivities.

Esports Insider says: After hosting the ECS Season 6 Finals in this exact venue, it makes sense for FACEIT to return to Texas, a state that has quickly become somewhat of an esports hub in North America. Combining top tier CS:GO with Thanksgiving weekend has the potential to create a great weekend for attendees.
