The details from ESL about the next two seasons of the ESL Pro League were just announced earlier today. Following the victory of Cloud9 back in October, ESL has released their details for the next two seasons, starting Feb. 7, 2017.
The prize pool for 2017 will be $2 million, and will be split between the two seasons, meaning each season will have a $1 million prize pool. This prize pool isn’t to be sniffed at, especially considering it’s an increase of $500,000.
Starts- Feb. 7, 2017
Ends- May 18, 2017
Finals- First weekend of June
Starts- August 2017
Ends- November 2017
Finals: December 2017
Match days are going to be Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. With such a huge prize pool, the stakes are significantly higher, so prepare for another exciting year of intense, nail-biting games.
