August 10th, 2017 17:00

Odense has been chosen to host the offline finals of ESL Pro League Season 6, the tournament's organisers have announced.

The event will run from December 5 to 10 at the Sparekassen Fyn Arena, a 4,500 all-seated arena, as part of the Odense Gaming Week, a festival organised by the Odense Municipality.

The 12 best teams from Europe and North America will be in attendance at the event, where the bulk of the season's $1 million prize fund will be on offer.

Sparekassen Fyn Arena to host the next ESL Pro League Finals

The announcement marks the return of an ESL Pro League event to Europe, after the previous two editions took place in São Paulo and in Dallas.

"We are looking forward to bringing the Pro League CS:GO Finals to a completely new location and a brand new gaming expo", Ken Hershman, Commissioner and Executive Chairman of WESA, said in a statement.

"With this year's Pro League Finals being held in two outstanding locations, both rich with fans known to have a big passion for esports and CS:GO, we are expecting a truly exciting year for the league."

HLTV.org knows that Odense plans to host several other events over the next two years as it hopes to become a go-to stop for esports enthusiasts from all over Europe.

Tickets for the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals will go on sale on Friday on the event's official website, with prices ranging from 335 DKK (~$53) to 1,100 DKK (~$174).

My guess would be that it's cheaper to rent the arena there in fx. Copenhagen, and it's in the middle of our country! :-)

Don't know why that dude find it cancer. It should be cancer everywhere in Denmark due to shit weather and climate and primitive arrogant people, if he wanna look at it that way... -Odense is what they call for "the nordic sillicon valley", so i expect them to make an nice event ;-)

45€ (54$) lowest price ticket is the ticket for the full week-end (8 to 10th december) it seems so i understand the tickets price more now. (if it's for a single day it's a scam though)

Indeed, but esports is usually a ticket for several days (like this event) with things included like breakfast or smth. Football is just a ticket for two hours with nothing included I kinda feel bad for premier league fans though, those prices are even heavier than this
