G2 Esports have been invited to compete at ESL One Cologne, the event's organisers have announced.

The French giants are the fifth team confirmed for the $300,000 competition, joining Cloud9, FaZe, fnatic and SK, who were all previously invited by ESL.

G2 finished top eight in last year's ESL One Cologne tournament, beating TyLoo, Immortals and SK in the Swiss stage before being defeated by Na`Vi in the quarter-finals.

G2 to attend ESL One Cologne

The announcement comes at a difficult time for G2, who were sent packing at DreamHack Masters Marseille, their first event since bringing in Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas and giving the in-game leadership reins to Nathan "NBK-" Schmittfollowing defeats to Cloud9 and Envy

ESL One Cologne will take place from July 3-8, with the playoffs being held at the Lanxess Arena. The team list for the event currently looks as follows:
