If you weren't aware, the ESL One Cologne CS:GO competition is in full swing right now with the early matches, and from tomorrow the main event will start and the fans will get the chance to see teams in action, with ESL now announcing that the venue is sold out for the third time in a row.

This event marks the first time that any of the teams can complete the Intel Grand Slam, a $1,000,000 USD prize awarded to teams who win four out of 10 eligible events, with FaZe Clan sitting one win away.

"Home is where your heart is and Cologne is the beating heart of CS:GO", said Ulrich Schulze, SVP of Product at ESL. "It's incredible how far we've come with ESL One Cologne thinking back to the first edition back in 2014 at Gamescom. We are incredibly excited to see so many CS:GO fans from all over the world and we are humbled to represent the global Counter-Strike community here in our hometown once again. The crowd at LANXESS arena never disappoints and we can't wait to deliver another memorable esports weekend for all visitors on-site and the millions watching online."
