ESEA has announced the schedule for its Season 13 European Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Open league playoffs taking place online over the next month.
A total of sixteen teams have qualified for ESEA Open Season 13 playoffs, where they will compete for a prize purse of $2,750 and a chance to get into ESEA Invite for Season 14.
Although the bracket hasn't been published yet with the first round of upper bracket scheduled to take place on Monday March 11, below are some of the most notable teams to make it:
The playoffs will be held in a best-of-one double elimination bracket, and the full schedule for each round and maps have been published now. Default match time for each game is 20:30.
Teams are only allowed to reschedule matches within a 24-hour period from the original match time, and only if both teams agree, so the default dates will likely stick for most matches.
