The history of ESL begins about 20 years ago in the earliest stages of competitive online gaming in Germany. Since then, ESL has not only brought esports into your living room but has also grown into the world's largest esports company. With our top-class event, the ESL One New York 2019 powered by Intel®, we visit the Barclays Center Brooklyn for the fourth consecutive year in a row.

ESL ONE New York 2018
In 2018 the Big Apple was ripe for an upset. Favorites and former ESL One New York powered by Intel® winners FaZe Clan (2017) and Na'Vi (2016) wilted in the group stage of ESL One New York 2018, granting a golden opportunity for new teams to write themselves into the CS:GO history wikis. Despite enjoying a home-field advantage, the horse could not handle the mouse and Team Liquid let a 2-1 lead in the Grand Final slip for mousesports to take their place in the champion's book of ESL One New York winners.
