Tour Structure 

The ESL Pro Tour holds three tiers of competition

Championships are the pinnacle of CS:GO competition and are held twice a year in packed out arenas. Teams endure an arduous qualification process in order to claim their right to compete on the world stage and see who will be decided the world’s Champions.

Masters  are where both established teams and the champions of Challenger tournaments compete. Held in prestigious arenas, teams that are successful within Masters boost their chances of qualifying to a Masters Championship tournament.

Challenger offers a doorway for aspiring teams to compete regionally, earning ESL Pro Tour points and providing a path for teams to qualify to a Masters tournament.
