Following the success of the first Vainglory Unified Championship in the Spring season, the best players in NA and Europe will be back again live in LA for the Vainglory Unified Summer Season Championship. This time around, the event will be held at the legendary Globe Theatre in Los Angeles from September 8 to 10.
Once again, Cloud9 and Team SoloMid will be the headlines going into the Summer Championships. Cloud9 has not looked back since winning the Spring Championships, as the team were also winner of the Amazon Mobile Masters Invitational, and current sits tied for 1st in the Vainglory8 for North America. Sharing the top of the rankings with Cloud9 are longtime rival TSM. The trio of FlashX, VONC, and BestChuckNA have now been together longer than any other Vainglory line up – will their chemistry help lead the team back to another Championship?
Meanwhile, top European teams such as FNATIC and SK Gaming will look to dethrone the NA Champions and earn Europe its first Unified Championship. Despite having “home court advantage” in London during the Spring Championship, FNATIC were swept by TSM 3-0 during the quarterfinals. Perhaps now with a chip in their shoulder, FNATIC will look to step up their game and claim their first Unified Championship in foreign territory.
Fans can now purchase tickets to the Summer Season Championship at Eventbrite. Fans unable to make it to LA to watch live, can stream all the matches by visiting Vainglory’s official Twitch, Facebook and YouTube channels.
