This Week's Top Storylines
 
LIVE TBS SHOWCASE:  Turner and IMG’s ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017 will present the Group C showcase with live coverage beginning Friday, Sept. 22, at 10 p.m. ET on TBS. Four teams – Virtus.pro, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Cloud9 and EnVyUs – will compete for two of the four remaining playoff spots and a larger share of the $1 million prize pool.

LIVE DIGITAL COVERAGE: Live digital coverage will begin Friday at 6 p.m. across Twitch, ELEAGUE.com and YouTube in addition to the Friday night showcase. Live match coverage will continue Saturday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. across those digital platforms.

VETERANS RETURN: Group C will showcase ELEAGUE Season 01 Champions and ELEAGUE Major runners-up Virtus.pro, the longest-standing roster in professional CS:GO competition.
A NEW ERA: Past Major champions Ninjas in Pyjamas will look to re-capture their position among the world's elite after adding Fredrik "REZ" Sterner. NiP's former lineup still holds the record for the most consecutive LAN wins (87).
 
Executive Viewpoint
"The pressure is on for NiP. The burden of proof is on them to show that there's more to their recent success – that it's not just been a fluke honeymoon period."
– Daniel "DDK" Kapadia
