We are happy to welcome the Swedish magicians of Ninjas in Pyjamas to ESL One Cologne 2018 powered by Intel! They will join the fray of 15 other teams in the battle for the coveted trophy, a US$300,000 prize pool, and a win counting towards the US$1,000,000 Intel Grand Slam.
Ninjas in Pyjamas
Currently 12th in the ESL World Ranking with 486.2 points.
NiP finished in the top 6 at IEM World Championship Katowice and in the top 8 at the recent DreamHack Marseille. They also had a top 8 finish at ESL One Cologne last year – will they manage to climb up higher this year?
Later today, we will get to watch NiP compete at the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals in Dallas, after they finished second in the online portion of the season, with 52 points earned in 26 matches. Their first matchup will be against the currently struggling SK Gaming. We’re looking forward to see how the Swedes will fare in the US.
See you in Cologne!
ESL One Cologne will take place on July 6-8 in the legendary LANXESS Arena – be sure to join us at the cathedral of Counter-Strike!
