The ESEA Global Challenge Schedule and Viewers Guide

Bravado Gaming is safely in USA and, one would imagine, well into their preparation for their upcoming matches against some of the top CS:GO talent from around the world at the ESEA Season 23 Global Challenge Finals (otherwise known as the Mountain Dew League Lan). This event will be a good opportunity for the team to attempt to find their international feet ahead of the next major event, the WESG Finals, which is being held in China later this month.


The ESEA Season 23 Global Challenge Finals is set to take place from the 6-8 January at the ESL Studios in Burbank, California and will see teams competing for their share of the $50,000 prize pool. Sadly, due to time zone issues, the match schedule could be problematic for South African viewers but, sleep aside, let’s dive into the stream details and schedule.

Eight teams will compete from the following regions around the world:

North America:
