ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2018 Series to Feature Star Player “TACO” Facing Former Team, Friday, Sept. 21, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS

Turner and IMG’s ELEAGUE will showcase the top moments from its CS:GO Premier 2018 when the brand’s seven-part feature series continues Friday, Sept. 21, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS. The show’s latest edition will feature popular Counter-Strike player Epitácio “TACO” de Melo as he pursued a statement win against his longtime former team, after being released from its roster in March.

The hour-long feature show will center on the CS:GO Premier’s final Group Stage match, which saw Made in Brazil (mibr)’s storied group, led by Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, take on Team Liquid and TACO. TACO joined Team Liquid after more than two years on FalleN’s squad – first under the Luminosity Gaming banner, and later with SK Gaming – where he helped win two consecutive Major Championships, but was later released. The episode will highlight TACO’s opportunity to prove his skill and exact revenge on his former team by knocking it out of the Premier.

The series will continue weekly on Fridays at 11 p.m. ET/PT, with the sixth episode set to premiere Friday, Sept. 28 on TBS.
