Gloucester-based hosting provider Fasthosts have joined forces with epic.LAN to sponsor the epic26 CS:GO tournament this February which will see the prize pool boosted as well as a 12-month match server for the winning team which will be managed by epic.LAN’s game server control platform.

epic.LAN hosts the majority of its online infrastructure with the UK-based hosting company and has a long history of working together going back to 2012 when the companies worked together to deliver two huge online CSS and COD4 tournaments each with 128 teams taking part.

During epic26, epic.LAN will be showcasing the new Fasthosts Bare Metal Server range with online aspects of the event including external CS:GO TV relays and Twitch stream relays to show off their capabilities.
