What is the ECL?

You may ask what the ECL is exactly. You wouldn’t be remiss for thinking that this is just another CS:GO tournament in a sea of CS:GO tournaments. Simply put, the ECL is a premium broadcast tournament designed to elevate the esports industry in South Africa by providing something truly special. We will give the talented players of South Africa a platform to be recognised and to be able to showcase that this isn’t just another online event for people to take part in. This is a professional tournament, a premium sports product with some of the best esports teams that this nation has to offer. The ECL is something that we, as South African gaming enthusiasts, can watch and be proud of. Evetech admires every single gamer out there and wants to offer a platform for every talented gamer to have their name up in lights, to showcase their talent online. ECL is the start of something incredible. This is our way of adding to the already thriving gaming culture here in South Africa.

What are the future plans for the ECL?

The future looks bright for esports competitors and the esports fans all over South Africa. The ECL is looking to take competitive gaming to the next level by introducing more seasons throughout the year as well as incorporating additional competitive titles into the mix. We want the ECL to be more than just a playground for teams to compete against one another once a year. Our vision for the present and the future of the ECL is to develop a stronger gaming ecosystem, to help people realise their true potential and provide a platform for them to take their skills to a whole new level. Season 3 of the ECL is just the beginning of something much greater and we all hope that every gamer and esports fan who is as passionate about gaming as we are joins us for this epic journey in South African esports. We may not be the largest community in the world, but we are definitely one of the most passionate and dedicated gaming communities on earth and that is something that we can all be proud of.


This is your time to shine, and potentially have you and your team face up against some of the best South African competitors in the esports scene. Take your shot now and you could be crowned the next ECL champion and solidify your team as one of South African’s finest.
