ESL Pro League - Returns to Malta

ESL Pro League S16 to take place in Malta with Playoffs Audience

Today we’re glad to announce that we will be extending our partnership with the Ministry for the Economy, EU Funds and Lands through the GamingMalta Foundation for the next 3 years, beginning with the upcoming ESL Pro League Season 16 on August 31st. Malta will be the home location of the biggest CS:GO league in history, and will host ESL Pro League up until the end of Season 20.

With 24 world class teams competing for the lionshare of $850,000, where the Champions will also receive a vital invitation to IEM Katowice 2023 - we’d also like to give an update on the audiences during the tournament.

There will be a live audience with open attendance during the Playoffs, at a venue created by Gaming Malta and ESL for ESL Pro League Season 16 at the Salini Resort, however there will be no live audience during the group stages. If you wish to attend the Playoffs, keep on the lookout for more information. Tickets will be available 5th September. 

We can’t wait to see you in Malta, are you ready to tune in for ESL Pro League Season 16?

Be sure to follow our Twitter and the EPL website for further updates.
