ESL has revealed Natus Vincere as the fifth team directly invited to ESL One New York.

Natus Vincere will be joining fierce competition at the $250,000 tournament as the fifth invited team after FaZe, Liquid, fnatic, and mousesports.

The news of Natus Vincere's addition to the team list comes a little over a day after they hoisted their second trophy in a row at CS:GO Asia Championships.

Na`Vi will return to New York in September

The Ukraine-based squad are no strangers to the New York tournament, as they're returning to the Big Apple for the third time, having clinched the trophy in the first edition in 2016 and placed fifth-sixth in 2017,

ESL One New York will take place on September 26-30, with the playoffs once again being held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The team list now looks as follows:

Smart choice for cash, both tournaments same prize pool by Istanbul with less better teams compared to NY. But I'd say New York 2019 is more prestigious because better teams

But Ukraine is not part of CIS anymore. They should've used WORLD flag by this logic(like HR)
2018-06-20 01:48
noone cares that ukraine withdrew its membership
2018-06-20 02:29
Since when? I'm curious
2018-06-20 05:41
Since last month, i had to google it, cause i was curious about it too
2018-06-20 06:15
Actually Ukraine never was in CIS. Its like Ak47 - there is no such rifle but people still call all kalashnikov's rifles like this
2018-06-20 08:24
Stupid or yes?
2018-06-20 11:07
Ok, you was right. I'm very sorry about my last post and I hope one day you'll forgive me.
