Faceit and Halo developer 343 Industries have teamed up to reveal the Faceit Ignite: Halo European Open, an offline event in the UK between August 17 and 18, hosting a 4v4 Halo 3 competition and a day of 2v2 Halo 5 action.

The Faceit Ignite: Halo European Open will be hosted at Twickenham Stadium, where UK-based organization Excel Esports just opened its League of Legends training facility.

32 teams from Europe and North America will compete over two days. A total prize pool of USD 30,000 will be handed out across both of the competitions.

Faceit launched the first licensed Apex Legends esports series at the end of May, with 16 organisations fielding rosters for eight USD 5,000 tournaments. An additional USD 10,000 prize pool will be up for grabs for the team that accrues the most points over the course of the series.
