Series’ Fourth Edition will Focus on Olofmeister Rejoining Competitive Scene in an Elimination Match Against His Former Team

ELEAGUE, the premium esports content and live tournament brand from Turner and IMG, will bring fans a closer look at a pivotal moment in recent Counter-Strike history: the return of legend Olof ‘Olofmeister’ Kajbjer during its CS:GO Premier 2018. The fourth episode of ELEAGUE’s documentary series – capturing all of the top moments surrounding the million-dollar tournament – will center on Olofmeister, CS:GO’s most celebrated player, and his return from an extended personal absence when it premieres Friday, Sept. 14, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
 


The series will pick up its feature coverage during the tense final matches of the Group Stage, where many teams faced a win-or-go-home scenario. Among them was Olofmeister’s current squad FaZe Clan, considered the richest roster in the world. His much-anticipated return came after an extended absence from the competitive scene. ELEAGUE’s latest episode – Olof Returns – will give fans an all-access pass to his dramatic career restart as he faces his long-time former team Fnatic in a must-win showdown at ELEAGUE.
