ESL has revealed that their ESL One New York event will return to Brooklyn's Barclays Center for a fourth consecutive year between September 28 and 29 this year, with $200,000 USD and an Intel Grand Slam point up for grabs in a competition featuring top CS:GO teams from around the world.
Six invited teams will join two other teams who earn spots from North America and Europe qualifiers. These will then be split into two double-elimination groups, before heading into the single-elimination playoffs. Semi-finals will be played on the main stage, with the best-of-five grand final rounding things off.
The event will also see the end of the ESL Mobile Open's Season 2, with amateur gamers sharing the main stage with professional players, as well as the return of the MSI Gaming Arena with its own trophy and prize pool.
"ESL One is a flagship event for ESL, and we are thrilled to be back at Barclays Center for the fourth year in a row," said Yvette Martinez-Rea, CEO, ESL North America. "Along with the world's best CS:GO competition, we are bringing mobile gaming to the forefront with the Season Two Mobile Open Finals. ESL One New York promises to be one of North America's most unforgettable esports events of the year."
"Barclays Center has become a premier destination for live esports events, and we are thrilled to welcome ESL One New York back to our arena for the fourth consecutive year," said Brett Yormark, CEO, BSE Global. "Hosting ESL One New York is a terrific example of how esports and mainstream entertainment complement one another, and we look forward to continuing to play a role in the growth of esports worldwide."
