ESL One Hamburg 2017
After three remarkable years of ESL One Frankfurt, ESL moves to its newest Dota 2 stop in Germany - ESL One Hamburg! The $1,000,000 USD tournament, which is set to take place on October 26-29, will be the eighth ESL One installment for Dota 2 and will mark ESL's first ever event in the Barclaycard Arena of Hamburg, previously the home of Hamburg’s handball and ice hockey teams. Additionally, ESL One Hamburg has attained Major status as part of the new tournament ruleset from Valve for the 2017-2018 competitive season! This makes ESL One Hamburg the first Major of the season and second one ever to take place in Germany, after The Frankfurt Major in 2015.
