All you eSport fans ESL has some news for you, ESL UK will be hosting this year’s spring finals of the Counter Strike: Global Offensive premiership powered by Intel and Gaming from Curry’s PC World on 14-15 April. The Best of the Best, Four Teams to be exact will battle it out at ESL UK’s Studio 1 in Leicester, battling to win a £13.000 prize pool and a slot in the European Mountain Dew League.
As with all eSports or Sports in general there is an element of eSports betting, and I have to say I have dabbled in this myself and lost a bit and won a bit, so if you are a betting person and what to support your team while also winning something for yourself why not checkout some eSports betting sites for yourself, there are plenty out there.
CS: GO Premiership kicked off on 19 February, which saw 10 teams across the UK competed in the group stage, with matches broadcast on Monday and Wednesday evening for five weeks. The play-offs will take place 26 March, 28 March, and 2 April, broadcast live by ESL UK.
We are not in the 7th season, the ESL Premiership is the longest running CS: GO tournament in the UK. AS the UK eSports scene grow so goes ESL, as it expanded its roster from eight eligible teams to 10 teams, and this is also reflected in the increased prize pool of £13.000, the largest ever for the CS: GO Premiership
As part of ESL’s Path to Pro programme, the 2018 Premiership champions will get to compete at a European level with a slot in the Mountain Dew League.
