The ESL Premiership has been expanded to ten teams and the prize pool increased to £12,000 (~$16,600), the league's organisers have revealed.

With the total number of teams in the league now up to 10 from eight, ESL has decided to change the format of the league, which will begin with two groups of five teams, who will battle it out in a best-of-one round robin stage.

At the end of this stage, the third-placed teams will be pitted against the fourth-placed sides in the opposite group, with the winners then facing a group runner-up in a qualifying match for the chance to join the group winners at the season finals.

Endpoint won the last edition of the ESL Premiership

The ESL Premiership will kick off on February 19 at 20:00, with all matches being streamed live on twitch.tv/ESL_CSGO. The complete schedule will be released next week, according to ESL.

Below you can find the group draw in full:

Group A Group B
United Kingdom Endpoint United Kingdom Radix
United Kingdom fish123 United Kingdom Stifmeister
United Kingdom Pat's Money Crew United Kingdom Vexed
United Kingdom Luminary United Kingdom Enclave
United Kingdom Epiphany Bolt United Kingdom Nuclear Storm

Endpoint won the last edition of the ESL Premiership, which culminated with an offline event in September as part of the EGX trade fair, in Birmingham, taking home the bulk of the league's ~$13,800 prize fund and a spot in ESEA MDL.

I can't imagine he will be allowed in a ESL UK Prem team to compete for MDL when he's in Epsilon who are in Main. I could be wrong.
