Dates of ESL Impact’s 2024 program featuring monthly ESL Impact Cash Cups on FACEIT, online league seasons and live Finals events in Counter-Strike 2 revealed

2023 vs 2024 Changelog

As we look to consolidate and improve the ESL Impact circuit, changes to tournaments and regional slots will be happening in 2024. These will be reviewed again ahead of 2025.

Standalone events

In the coming year, we decided to take a step back and revise our approach to standalone events. While we are in the process of exploring new opportunities, there will be no standalone events happening in 2024.

Regional slot distribution

Adjustments to regional slots for season finals have been made to ensure that the best talent is given the opportunity to compete at top-tier events. In response to low participation rates in certain regions during 2023, qualification slots have been reallocated to areas with the highest competition. Looking ahead to 2024, we plan to continue investing resources into the development of the Counter-Strike women's league in less prominent regions. That being said, the slot allocation for the season finals in the upcoming year will be as follows:

Season 5 Dallas

1. European League5. North American League
2. European League6. North American League
3. European League7. South American League
4. European League8. Asian Qualifier

Season 6 Stockholm

1. European League5. European League
2. European League6. South American League
3. European League7. South American League
4. European League8. North American League
