The ESL Premiership CS:GO competition's Summer Season is starting this month, as from June 18 to July 16 10 teams will compete for £13,000 in prize money, making this the first year that ESL will offer three seasons of CS:GO action in the UK in one year.
Each team plays two matches every Monday, starting at 19:00 BST, and the top two teams from each group qualify for the finals, with the next six teams qualifying for playoffs. This playoff phase will run from July 23 to 30, and will see three best-of-three games being played over two Monday nights, with the finals then taking place on August 111 and 12.
One of these teams will qualify for the Mountain Dew League alongside teams from Europe and North America, giving teams a chance to fight for a place in the ESL Pro League.
James Dean, Managing Director of ESL UK, said: "CS:GO is a hugely popular game in the UK', said Dean. 'We're continuing to provide the best UK competition for players and teams thanks to a highly competitive schedule and the amazing opportunity to step up to the MDL. There's never been more to play for in the UK's Counter-Strike scene."
