Ninjas in Pyjamas have been invited to attend ESL One Cologne, the event's organisers have revealed.

NiP become the tenth team confirmed for the German event, joining a star-studded list that includes all the current top five teams in the world, bar mousesports.

A quarter-finalist in Cologne last year, NiP are in action at the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, where a defeat to SK in their opening match has put the team on the brink of elimination.

With NiP's announcement, there is now just one invite left to be announced. The other five spots that are still up for grabs will be filled through the online qualifiers that will be held in Europe, North America and Asia, and the GG.BET Majestic tournament.

The team list for the German event currently looks as follows:

Brazil SK United States Cloud9
Sweden fnatic  Europe FaZe
France G2 Denmark Astralis
Germany BIG North America Liquid
Ukraine Natus Vincere Sweden NiP 

ESL One Cologne will run from July 3-8, with the last three days of the event being held at the LANXESS Arena. Featuring a $300,000 prize-pool, the tournament will count towards the prestigious Intel Grand Slam prize.

There’s only 1 invite left and 5 teams from quilifiers. Mouz deserve the last invite imo
2018-05-16 00:16
2 more teams will be invited esl-one.com/csgo/cologne-2018/teams/
2018-05-16 00:17
Mouz really needs time to practice. Would make sense to skip Cologne for praccc to major if they do not get invited.

100 % sure its Mouz. VP maybe gets an invite to the closed Qualifier or even the gg.bet Qualifier in the last Stage or Playoffs. Only reason why Mouz wouldn't be there is if the declined the invite.
2018-05-16 02:02
maybe they did already because I would expect them to be invited earlier
