The biggest Counter-Strike event of the year is already living up to the hype for travelling fans from 62 countries. The legendary ESL One Cologne crowd will be more diverse than ever with 40% of all attendees hailing from outside Germany. The only continent not represented at the event is Antarctica, but we’ll surely get that fixed in the future.
To celebrate the fans that create the unique atmosphere which has players and casters in awe, we're going to invite one fan from each country to a special Welcome Dinner. We'll go through all attendees and randomly select 62 names - every ticket holder is eligible to be selected. The drawing will take place next week and each winner will be contacted directly via email, so be sure to check your inboxes!
The Welcome Dinner is set to take place after the first stadium day on Friday, July 6th. The exact details regarding start time and meeting location will follow via emails to all winners.
We’re excited to celebrate with you in Cologne and can’t wait to meet each and every one of you! We are one!
