In the beginning of the year we set out to host the majority of ESL and DreamHack tournaments as in-person competitions from within a controlled studio environment.
While our return to live audience events is still set to be in November of this year, we are here with an update regarding several of our upcoming events. Due to the ever changing landscape we have had to make changes to our calendar and how we will bring everyone the best show possible directly to your screens at home. All of this is in order to make the right decisions for our players, crew, staff and of course, our fans.

As we have been doing throughout the year, we will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and provide additional quarterly updates to further inform everyone as to what the ESL and DreamHack calendar will look like for the remainder of the year.
We continue to do everything within our power to bring our fans a competition where the players will once again be on LAN. We hope to do so from within a studio environment with ESL One Cologne 2021.
