The CS:GO squad is off to CEVO LAN Season 7 in Columbus, Ohio. CLG will be replacing NiP (1st in EU League) who dropped out due to last minute obligations. In regular season of CEVO S7, CLG placed 5th in North America meaning this is a second chance this month for the squad to prove themselves at a major LAN in North America. Sudden inclusion of the team allows the squad to once again have the ability to reclaim their #1 spot in CEVO. Previously at CEVO Season 6 LAN CLG defeated eLevate in the finals to claim their #1 spot in CEVO.

The groups for day one of CEVO LAN S7 are as follows:

Group A

Group B

 Cloud9

 Virtus.pro

 mousesports

 Luminosity

 Liquid

 Na`Vi

 CLG

 Tempo Storm

 
CLG will be up against Cloud9 in their first best of 3 group match. This will be a difficult match-up for CLG, since Cloud9 have been on a tear, taking three consecutive second place finishes at ESL ESEA Pro League S1, ESWC and FaceIT LAN. CLG’s jdm64 and C9’s Skadoodle AWP duel will be pivotal in this match-up, and will certainly be a highlight in this best of 3.

Joining CLG.CS for CEVO LAN Season 7 will be Nihilium’s Sancz as a substitute for FNS. Travel complications have prevented FNS from travelling abroad until his VISA is approved, it is expected to be approved before ESL One Cologne next month.

Sancz is a worthy substitute for FNS, he has been playing with Nihilum for two full seasons of Professional league, has experience on LAN, and is regarded as a key player for Nihilum. In addition to Sancz substituting, Cutler, who has already displayed strong mid-round calling will be taking over the in game leading role for FNS this LAN.

MLG will be on the back-end of production, and have already shown great promise in last season’s finals and other eSports. On the front end, we have CEVO’s casters who will be providing play by play and analysis on the desk. You can expect top tier production and high level analysis all weekend.

The $117,000 event goes live today with the pre-game show, Friday, July 24th at 4:45PM ET. CLG vs C9 match goes live at 7:30PM ET.
