Season 17 expansion

After receiving feedback from the community, on-air talent, and the partner teams of the Louvre Agreement throughout 2022, we’ve taken the decision to revaluate ESL Pro League. There are changes and improvements we’ll be making in 2023, all of which will be effective starting from Season 17 in February.

One Tour. one story.

The ESL Pro Tour is our vision for esports. One open ecosystem connecting all of ESL and DreamHack’s competitions around the world. One world for leagues and tournaments. One path from rookie amateur to global icon. A place where everybody can be somebody.

FaqsESL Pro League explained

Currently, 15 teams jointly govern and participate in revenue for ESL Pro League. They also have long-term participation slots which protect them from getting relegated.

Yes, ESL Pro League is open for everyone to play in regardless of partner status. We believe in an open ecosystem, where every new talent has a direct path to play on the world’s biggest stages.
Seeding for the groups of ESL Pro League is done based on the ESL World Ranking and independent of partner status.
The partner teams get a number of slots in ESL Pro Tour events if they are ranked top 20 in the world. A 16 team event for example has 6 slots for partner teams.
