SK & G2 to ESL One New York
ESL has announced G2 and SK Gaming's new team as the first two invited squads for the upcoming ESL One event in New York.
Both teams were the finalists of the recent ESL Pro League Season 3 finals and also faced off in the title decider at the ECS Season 1 Finals, last weekend, with the French side securing the trophy with a 2-0 victory.
On October 1-2, the Barclays Center, home of NBA franchise Brooklyn Nets and of NHL team New York Islanders, will stage ESL One New York - the second stop of the ESL One 2016 circuit to feature CS:GO (the first being the Cologne Major).
