ELEAGUE hosted its second CS:GO Major in two years – with Cloud9, the first American CS:GO roster to win a Major Championship – defeating FaZe Clan 14-16, 16-10, 22-19 (2OT) in the Grand Final, live from Boston’s Agganis Arena.

The Grand Final of The ELEAGUE Major: Boston generated more than 1,130,000 concurrent streams to set an all-time record for a single Twitch channel (ELEAGUE TV), breaking last year’s record-setting mark established during the inaugural  ELEAGUE Major.

"As a first Major playoff appearance, it is amazing.”

- Tyler 'Skadoodle' Latham on leading the first American roster to win a Major Grand Final.

"That is the most insane way to win a Major. They were heavy underdogs but they did it for North America." 

- ELEAGUE Caster Daniel 'DDK' Kapadia on the odds being stacked against Cloud9.
