FaZe Clan is ranked among the best teams in the world and coming off a win at StarLadder i-League Season 3 and second place finishes at IEM Katowice and IEM Sydney. FaZe, which rejoined the World Esports Association today, will next attend the ECS Season 3 Finals next week in London and received the third invite to be handed out among the eight-team field for ESL One New York.
FaZe will join Natus Vincere and Virtus.pro at the event, which runs Sept. 16-17 and carries a $250,000 prize pool. Na’Vi and VP met in last year’s final, with Natus Vincere coming out on top, but the current FaZe lineup, which features Nikola “NiKo” Kovac, stands a chance to topple any team in the world. The rest of the field will be announced at a later date.
ESL One New York will also be in the recently announced Intel Grand Slam, meaning the winner of this event could go toward the $1,000,000 grand prize for any team that wins four out of 10 ESL or DreamHack events with at least a $200,000 prize pool.
Tickets for ESL One New York are available now.
