Esports Balkan League Season 2 announced with ~$25,000 prize-pool

The second season of the Esports Balkan League has been announced, featuring a 20,000€ (~$24,750) prize pool and online qualifiers.

The league will kick off on May 7 with a double round-robin stage featuring eight teams, six invitees and two qualified sides.

Among the invited teams are the defending champions Windigo as well as Valiance, who recently raised eyebrows after qualifying for DreamHack Masters Marseille.

The qualifying phase will begin with an open tournament, on April 14-15. The top four teams of the qualifier will progress to a closed stage, running from April 16-20 and featuring also four invited sides. 

SPELLAN's Windigo won last year's edition

Below you can find the team list for the league:

Bulgaria Windigo Serbia Valiance
Bulgaria MK Hungary GameAgents
Serbia Bajini Puleni Romania Nexus
Europe Closed qual. Europe Closed qual.

The top four teams of the online portion of the Esports Balkan League will advance to the offline finals, which will be held at the beginning of the summer at an as-yet-undisclosed venue.
