This league has been cancelled.
The league has been divided into online European and North American divisions.

ESL Pro League Season 11 is the first season of the league following the introduction of permanent-partner teams to the league as well as the transition to a single global league instead of multiple regionalized leagues.

The regular season was initially intended to be held in a studio environment in Malta but was cancelled and moved online due to Malta closing its borders to multiple countries as a response to the increasing spread of COVID-19. The season finals were initially intended to be held in the 1STBANK Center, Denver but were cancelled and moved to a studio in Europe also due to the increasing spread of COVID-19. [1] The studio finals were also later cancelled due to further COVID-19 concerns with the league being regionalized again and moved entirely online. [2]
