PEA CS:GO league is dead

PEA has confirmed that its CS:GO league is officially canceled.

“Since the time of the original announcement of the PEA CS:GO league, it has become clear to the PEA organizations that there isn’t sufficient financial support in the ecosystem,” said the PEA in a statement.

“Either from broadcast/streaming partners, sponsors or others, to profitably operate a third prominent online league, due to the oversaturation of the marketplace and the recent upward spiral in operating costs.”

This news comes following reports about players with Cloud9, Counter Logic Gaming, Immortals, NRG Esports, Team Liquid, and Team SoloMid voting not to take part in the league, claiming mistreatment from PEA and the team owners and opting to instead compete in the ESL.
