We are thrilled to announce season 6 of the ESL Pro League! After an exciting season 5 with a great conclusion in the legendary Counter-Strike city, Dallas, we are ready to jump back into several weeks of online play featuring Europe's and North America's best teams.
Starting on August 22nd 2017, 14 European and 14 North American teams will begin their journey to the season finals, and the battle for the US$1,000,000 prize pool. The online matches will take place over the course of 7 weeks, on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays. Three of those weeks will be "super weeks" with matches from Tuesdays till Sundays.
We will see a total of five new teams competing in this season of Pro League. Two in the EU division: GODSENT and BIG (who have impressed everyone with their performance at the Kraków Major), and three in the NA division: Ghost Gaming, Splyce and Enigma6.
All of the matches will be streamed live over at our YouTube channel with the native English stream being 1080p/60fps.
Season 6 of the ESL Pro League also counts toward the Intel Grand Slam meaning whichever team wins this season's finals will come closer to winning the staggering US$1,000,000 prize. So far, SK Gaming are in the lead with their win at the recent ESL One Cologne 2017.
We cannot wait to kick off another season of weekly world-class play and see which teams will come out on top this time! Thanks to our great partners, Intel, Lenovo, Logitech, paysafecard, xfinity, MDL, DBLTAP and, of course, YouTube, we will be able to once again deliver you a season of high-quality broadcast for several coming weeks.
