The Electronic Sports League (ESL) has confirmed to HLTV.org that k1ck will replace ESC Gaming at this weekend's RaidCall EMS One finals in Cologne.
The Portuguese side will tackle Ninjas in Pyjamas in the quarter-finals of the tournament, a match that is scheduled to start on Saturday at 20:00 .
k1ck had finished third in their EMS One group, behind Absolute Legends and ESC Gaming, and benefited from the Polish team's dropout, which was caused by Jarosław "pasha" Jarząbkowski feeling ill.
