Avant Gaming Take Home ESL ANZ Championship Title in Front of Massive Online Audience

The CS:GO team claims their first victory in the ESL ANZ Champs since 2017, and the lion’s share of a $20,000AUD Prizepool

Over April 4 & 5, Australia & New Zealand’s top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) players competed online in the ESL ANZ Championship Season 1 CS:GO Finals, to a peak concurrent viewership of over 23,000 live viewers, watching from all over the world.

The finals series saw Avant Gaming take the win over Melbourne-based ORDER in an intense match, which saw Avant initially down 0-1 before clawing back a 3-1 win. 

The series set a new record for viewership for a regional CS:GO competition in ANZ, with more than 60,000 unique viewers from across Australia and New Zealand tuning in, and watching more than 100,000 hours of streamed content across the weekend.

The ESL ANZ Champs continues this week, with Warcraft 3:Reforged being broadcast this Wednesday from 5pm AEST on twitch.tv/esl_australia.
