Cologne 2020

Online Tournament

Our team went above and beyond trying to make ESL One Cologne 2020 powered by Intel happen offline this year, but after a thorough evaluation we’ve concluded that we have to transition to an Online Tournament. The decision was made after extensive research and understanding of global travel regulations and individual national guidelines due to ongoing COVID-19 measures.

So this year, we are splitting the trophy across four regional divisions: Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania from 18th - 30th of August and are looking forward to bringing it back together at LANXESS arena in 2021 with fans, players, our crew, and of course, you.
