ESL One TicketsConsidered to be one of the most prestigious Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and DOTA 2 tournaments, ESL One is a tournament that travels around the world allowing regional professional esports teams to compete at a high level in esports tournaments.

What are the differences between the different ESL tournaments?ESL One is organized by ESL Gaming, formerly known as the Electronic Sport League until its rebranding in 2014. In addition to ESL One, ESL Gaming also organizes other esports tournaments around the world such as the ESL Pro League, ESL National Championships and Intel Extreme Masters. While ESL Pro League focuses solely on the team based Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at the professional level, Intel Extreme Masters takes both Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and StarCraft II all around the world. On the other end, the ESL National Championships allows both non-professional teams and individuals a chance to compete at a pre-professional gamer level.
Which esports teams were represented at the 2019 ESL One tournaments?Some of the esports teams that competed at 2019 ESL One tournaments include teams such as ENCE, G2 Esports, eUnited, Team Liquid, Astralis, FaZe Clan, Evil Geniuses and OpTic Gaming. ESL One tournaments allow the inclusion of open participation teams. While six of the eight professional teams were invited to the tournament, the remaining two spots are available for one North American team and one European team that are trying to establish themselves in the esports community.
What can I expect when watching an ESL One tournament live?ESL One tournaments are usually divided up into the qualification and tournament rounds. Teams who were invited by the organizer do not participate in the qualification rounds; instead, they go straight to the tournament rounds. Qualification rounds are open to both North American and European teams. In 2019, G2 Esports and eUnited were the two teams who passed through the qualifying rounds in New York. The two qualified teams are then placed into group brackets for a showdown with the invited teams. This will be followed by the grand finals. The finals are staged arena events where players play on stations in player booths set up on the stage. The audience will be able to watch the in-game action broadcast onto the big screen onstage.
Where were the 2019 ESL One tournaments held?The 2019 ESL One tournaments were held at various arenas around the world. The main ESL One tournaments in 2019 were held at Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany, Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany, and Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, New York.
