FaZe Clan joins the European division of the ESL CS:GO Pro League in season 3!

Recently, we have announced the addition of Renegades to the North American division of the ESL Pro League via the wildcard system. Today, we are happy to reveal that the European wildcard team will be no other than FaZe Clan.
FaZe Clan has acquired the players of G2 Esports: Maikelele, rain, jkaem, aizy and fox on January 20th. The lineup's most recent performance included StarLadder XIV Finals where they placed 5th-6th after losing to Fnatic 0-2 in the round of six. Nevertheless, the players of FaZe Clan have proven in the past tournaments that they are able to compete with the top CS:GO teams.

Zebastian "zbM" Molinder, manager of FaZe Clan, said the following about joining the ESL Pro League:

"We are really happy to announce that we got the opportunity to participate in the ESL Pro League. The team is very happy and looking forward what 2016 can bring, and ESL Pro League is one of the biggest things this year in CS:GO. This year is gonna be one of the biggest year for the CS:GO scene and all the teams out there! To be there with all the top teams in the scene and to represent FaZe is gonna be an amazing feeling for us, we are gonna show that FaZe is here to stay! #FaZeUp"
FaZe Clan will face Europe's very best teams, including two-time Pro League champions, Fnatic. The competition will be stiff and we will see tons of thrilling matchups, all of which will be played on the ESEA platform and protected by the ESEA Anti-cheat system.
