ONE Yearly MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIP

This is our vision for esports. Introducing the ESL Pro Tour for StarCraft II, the place that combines the legacies of ESL, DreamHack and WCS tournaments in a 3 years' partnership. Starting with its first season, it will offer more than US $1.8 Million across the tour and it will crown the official StarCraft II World Champion. And one very good reason to do it:
Create a world where everybody can be somebody.

FROM ZERO TO HERO 

Players and fans: In partnership with DreamHack we’re creating the path to glory. ESL Open Cups, Intel® Extreme Masters, DreamHack SC2 Masters & Korean tournaments now form one, united world under the ESL Pro Tour. Starting in 2020, all competitions will be aligned within new tier levels: ESL Open Cups, Masters Qualifiers and Masters that lead to the Masters Championship each winter; IEM Katowice in Poland.

New to the Pro Tour?

If you already are familiar with the Pro Tour and want to learn more about our plans and ideas for competitive StarCraft II please visit the How It Works section of the website. 

What's the ESL Pro Tour?

The ESL Pro Tour is a circuit combining  ESL and DreamHack tournaments which will be connected by a ranking system into one narrative that builds towards the Masters Championships each winter; Intel Extreme Masters Katowice. The Masters Championship will include the best players from the ESL Pro Tour and Korean leagues.

With this change we will have a more complete and simpler path from zero to hero for aspiring players, a more compelling story to follow for existing StarCraft II fans and a continued transparent structure for new esports fans. This will be the ultimate expression of our purpose: to create a world where everybody can be somebody.

Does the ESL Pro Tour only cover StarCraft II?

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and WarCraft III also have their ESL Pro Tours.

How does the ESL Pro Tour work?

Please visit the "How it works" section within the menu for a more detailed explanation. 

Are DreamHack and ESL now one company?

No, though ESL and DreamHack belong to the MTG Group. The ESL Pro Tour is a collaboration between the two organisations. Our tournaments are operated by their own respective teams.
