The UK Circuit ran a month-long pre-season to advertise it’s hubs, get players involved as well put the platform through its paces to make sure it was ready for an official launch. Today, the free pre-season came to an end and their subscription-based participation will launch at 6pm GMT. To play on the UK Circuit hubs you will now need to subscribe to them for £5 a month. This subscription will help raise funds to give away regular prizes across all divisions.

Once it’s installed and [...]
Towards the end of last year the UKCSGO Weekly Tournament vanished from our screens with very little warning or explanation. The reason for this is we turned our focus to the neverending task of bringing back UKCSGO County Championship, and we also started to look at other platforms as we were having increased problems with FaceIt each week. We are happy to say, the search for a new platform is over, and the County Championship is well underway!
