ESL Pro League (formerly ESL ESEA Pro League) is a venture between ESL and ESEA.

About[edit]

On April 28th, 2015, ESL announced a joint venture with ESEA to provide a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive league with $1,000,000 USD in total prize money for its first two seasons in 2015. [1] Initially, the competition only covered European and North American regions, however, in later seasons, it expanded and opened up the opportunity for teams in Asian, Oceanic, and South American regions to participate as well. Throughout its 12 seasons, the events are scheduled around Valve's Major tournament system, with offline finals in various locations around the world.
