With the season merely weeks away, let's take a look at the teams that will be joining us for the first ever ESL Premiership Season for Rainbow 6 Siege! Teams will be battling it out every Monday at 7pm on Twitch.tv/ESL_R6S.

They bring a lot of aggression to the Premiership, which will be hard for many teams to overcome. Team Captain Proxeh says that he "believes in his team to get the job done and there main goal is to not necessarily finish first place in the Premiership but to get to finals and see where they can go from there."
