KPI and Giants join ESL Clash of Nations team list
ESL's Clash of Nations, which will pit winners from last season's national championships as well as the second and third-ranked teams in this season's ESL Masters Spain, is set to take place on October 27-28.
The tournament will take place at the IFEMA fairgrounds in Madrid, Spain, during the Madrid Gaming Experience, on October 27-28, and the prize pool is yet to be revealed by the organizer.
Clash of Nations will feature six national championship winners from Spain, France*, Southeast Europe, Germany, Poland, and the United Kingdom*. Closing out the team list will be the second and third-placed teams in this season’s ESL Masters Spain.

The two spots going to the two leading teams in Spain—with the exception of Movistar Riders who are already qualified and leading this season of ESL Masters—went to KPI, who qualified last week, and to Giants, who beat G2V 16-14 in this week’s fixture to clinch a spot at the LAN in Madrid.
