It is with great pleasure that I can announce that GoatBet is joining us for the UKCSGO Weekly Tournament. This partnership allows us to offer giveaways during the stream and offer something extra to the winning team. Now, in addition to the FACEIT points, the winning team will receive £10 worth of free eSports bets each. This is subject to each member being over 18 years old, and having a GoatBet account.
We will also have a collection of £5 free eSports bets that we will be giving away during the stream via out new Twitch chat bot, so make sure you tune in and get involved in the chat.

I know it wasn’t that long ago that we announced the return of the UKCSGO Forum, but sadly it’s life expectancy wasn’t as long as we would have liked. As many of you know, we recently migrated to a new web server a couple of months ago. The migration of the core website, County Championship website, and other sites we host was a flying success. However, due to our choice of forum platform, the migration of this didn’t go too smoothly. We spent some time trying to recover the old forum and bring it back to life, but certain conflicts with the newer technology we chose for the server made it impossible to recover.

Hello people! I thought I would let you into the loop on a little update to UKCSGO… We have brought back the UKCSGO Forum!
The Forum disappeared when we moved to our new look as they weren’t very well supported by the theme. It was also fast becoming a nightmare to manage as the plug-in we used wasn’t as good as other options out there. This is why we have moved away from a plug-in based forum, and gone with a stand-alone system. This gives us a much better platform, more stability and flexibility to work with, helping us provide a better experience to you all.
