Esports: FaZe Clan claim first major CS:GO title in Antwerp

FaZe Clan have won their first ever major Counter Strike: Global Offensive title, having come out on top against Natus Vincere in the final of the PGL Antwerp Major on Sunday.

Following their triumph, FaZe Clan can be backed at 2/1 to win the upcoming IEM Dallas.

The team, led by Finn "karrigan" Andersen and featuring "rain", "broky", "Twistzz" and "ropz" were dominant 2-0 winners in the final against defending major champions NAVI.

FaZe make up for Boston collapse

And it will come as a relief for FaZe and "karrigan" in particular after they infamously blew a 15-9 lead on Inferno at the ELEAGUE Boston Major Grand Finals back in 2018, relinquishing a potential title to Cloud9.

This time, though, they made no such mistake, prevailing 19-16 on Inferno and 16-10 on Nuke to take the title and also become the first international outfit win a Valve-sponsored event in CS:GO.

It has been a memorable year already for FaZe, who took top spot in the world rankings after triumphs at the IEM Katowice and the ESL Pro League and this Major scalp suggests a new era of CS:GO dominance could be on the horizon.

karrigan delighted by success

After securing a first Major title of his career, "karrigan" spoke to the media about his team's comeback after the frustration in Boston four years ago.

He said: "Never back down, itdoesn't matter how hard life hits you. All I wanted in my life is to make history, an international team to win a major...and we did it in here.

"I'm proud to call all these teammates and I'm just so happy where I am right now. FaZe is my family."
