ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference

ESL Pro League Season 15

With the 2022 calendar release we announced the ESL Pro League Conference as an extension to our regular EPL season, the league will see an increase from 24 teams to 34. The tournament will now include a new stage which will see 16 teams from across all ESL Pro Tour Challenger tournaments battle it out in a double elimination bracket where 3 teams progress to the group stage of EPL S15. In future editions there will be 6 teams progressing from the conference stage, however for S15 we wanted to honor the placements of the ongoing ESEA Premier seasons where 3 teams would already join the regular EPLS15 group stage.

The EPL Conference stage is set to take place from November 23 - 28, 2021, and will be held online. We will be supporting teams from outside of Europe with travel and boot camp and all teams additional tech support throughout the tournament to ensure they are able to compete in the latest edition of ESL Pro League.
