It’ll come to nobody’s surprise that the reigning ESL One champions, Virtus.pro, are set to fill the first direct invite slot! The winners of both recent ESL Majors, ESL One Hamburg and ESL One Katowice, will now have the chance to defend their title in Birmingham. With their most recent victory in Poland, they have made history as the first ever team to win two ESL One events, both of them being Majors at that. In their midst, they also have two Mercedes MVPs in Solo and RodjER, their dynamic support duo.
Will Virtus.pro be able to extend their record-breaking performance by racking up the third ESL One Major title in a row? Be in the audience to find out! Our final wave of tickets is currently live, so don’t miss out on the chance to see the #1 ranked DPC team in action in the Arena Birmingham!
