One of the world's most iconic esports tournaments, ESL One Cologne returns with a $250,000 prize pool up for the taking!
The tournament is sacred ground for Fnatic. Back in 2015, Cologne was the site for our 3rd Major title win as we became the first (and only team thus far) to secure back to back crowns, cementing our place in Global Offensive greatness.
We return to face 15 of the world's top teams, and while we struggled to perform at the ECS finals, we're sure the hallowed ground will give us an extra boost needed to rule in Germany.
The tournament group stage kicks off in Swiss format, with 3 wins needed to advance to the bracket. The top 8 will see their selves through to a single elimination knockout stage, where all matches will be decided in a best of 3.
