South African CS:GO players have been asking for more tournaments to compete in. Souzern Lions, in proud partnership with FACEIT, are here to answer the call! Introducing the Souzern Lions League.

Souzern Lions League – Powered by FACEIT

The Souzern Lions League has created an exciting pickup game environment for individual competitive players, to help them work their way to the very top of the local scene. Our leagues have multiple divisions and will see players promoted or relegated based on their achievements. Starting with Bronze League, players will learn the fundamentals of team play and tactics. Silver League is where veteran players will be challenged and incentivized through our rewards program to play at a higher level. The invite-only Gold League is where elite players will get to test their skills against the best local opponents with even bigger rewards.

What rewards, you ask? FACEIT Points will be awarded to the top performers in each division. These can be used to purchase a variety of great items from the FACEIT Store. You can also look forward to a cash prize pool every month for the league’s best players in Gold League. Strive to be the best and be rewarded with Souzern Lions and FACEIT!

Of course, FACEIT’s legendary secure Anti-Cheat client will preside over all the games on our locally hosted server hub-network. We want to make sure everyone has the best possible experience on our platform.
