ESL UK has announced that the ESL Premiership Hearthstone finals will take place from Saturday January 6 to Sunday January 7 at the ESL Studio One in Leicester, and what's more is that we also know the eight finalists for the competition now. These finalists are Deathsie, BoarControl, ColdHands, ToastMonster, Big Ben, Danswf, HelloLeeroy, and Mysterious, and all of these can be watched in action on Twitch.
"It's exciting to be back for another ESL Finals," commented finalist Ben 'BigBen' Chapman. "The competition is tougher than ever this year with eight players in the final for the first time. I have a lot to prove from the last season, but I've had some big performances recently to steady my nerves on stage."
"The ESL Premiership is designed to promote the top UK esports talent and build a pathway to the professional scene," added Rob Black, COO at ESL UK. "Following a competitive Autumn season, eight of the best Hearthstone players in the UK will descend on Leicester and have the opportunity to showcase their talent to a growing audience, which can only be a good thing for the esports ecosystem in general. I can't wait for what we expect to be a great finals."
