We are happy to announce that ESL Pro League is returning to Dallas, Texas, on May 18-20, 2018. The Verizon Theatre will once again welcome the world's best teams and thousands of fans to witness top-notch CS:GO as we determine the champions of the currently ongoing season 7. The finals will host 16 teams competing for the championship title, and a lion's share of the US$1,000,000 prize pool.
After three days of compelling group stages, the audience will see two quarter-finals, the two semi-finals and the grand finale live on site spread across the three main event days.
"We are looking forward to bringing the Pro League Finals back to Dallas after such a successful Season Six Finals in Odense," said Ken Hershman, Commissioner and Executive Chairman, WESA. "This year we will expand the opportunity for Pro League competition to even more talented teams around the globe, and we look forward to an exciting year and eagerly await the Finals."
"With a couple of interesting new lineups forming and the superstars returning, this season will be very exciting to watch" said Ulrich Schulze Senior Vice President of Product at ESL. "Building off of the record-breaking year in Season Six, we aim to create the best CS:GO experience for Pro League fans both in attendance and online."
Tickets to the event will go on sale on Friday, February 23rd at 10AM CST! We cannot wait to be back in Dallas, an iconic city when it comes to the history of professional Counter-Strike.
