ESL League System

From Open to Pro

The ESL Pro League is a part of a bigger league system within ESL and is directly tied into ESL Play. It’s the highest league within the league system and has professional players and teams participating. Below the ESL Pro League you can find the ESL Major League with a limited amount of semi-professional teams who want to get serious and a similar structure as the Pro League. As ground base we have the ESL Open League which is open to everyone, just signup and start playing. It’s a league for everyone who wants to play outside the in-game matchmaking and get into the competitive scene. Good luck and have fun.

ESL S.K.I.L.L. Pro League

The best teams from Europe will compete in the ESL S.K.I.L.L. Pro League. The teams will face off in a groupstage, which means that all teams will face off against each other once per season. Teams will play their matches over several weeks in a best of 3 format. Each week we will stream the best matches via Twitch.

How to qualify

Due to the increase of slots for the second season we will run one extra qualifier to determine the last two teams for the ESL S.K.I.L.L. Pro League Season 2.

The Qualifier will be happening on September 1st and 2nd.


Good luck, have fun.
