ESL has revealed the groups for the second edition of its Latin American League.

Kicking off on October 29 and running until November 14, the league will feature eight teams from across Latin America, who will square off for almost $11,000 in prize money and a spot at the ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals.

Reigning LA League champions Sharks are one of the four invitees, along with Isurus, W7M and Wild. Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves's Imperial and Santos have qualified for the tournament following their heroics in the Brasil Premier League, with the final two spots due to be filled through an open qualifier.

Sharks set to return to Brazil to defend their LA League title

The eight participating teams have been drawn into two double-elimination groups, with all matches featuring a best-of-three format. The group draw looks as follows:

Group A
Brazil Sharks
Argentina Isurus
Brazil Santos
Other Qualifier
Group B
Brazil Wild
Brazil W7M
Brazil Imperial
Other Qualifier

Registration for the single-elimination open qualifier is already open and will run through October 15 - the starting date for the tournament.

The prize breakdown for ESL LA League is the following:

1. ESL Pro League S8 Finals spot + LA League S3 spot
2. $5,380 + LA League S3 spot
3-4. $1,880 + LA League S3 spot
5-6. $540
7-8. $270

Sharks is better than all these teams. These teams could upset them, but they are a bit better than all.

Sharks is better than both. Sharks prove this with very good matches recently against good Europe teams. They could lost to both, but atm they´re better. Very good matches that I reffered were against Valiance, Windigo and AGO. The three on BO3´s.

yeah thats true, they may have a solid base tbf
2018-10-10 06:32
if it could be that it has a better level, but they never play latam tournaments, because they play now, the teams that play in latam should always have priority ... I think that wild, imperial, isurus and detona can win a sharks

Chile has level, but the scene is a joke (roster change always and the players they retire because of the little or nothing of support in the country.

ez money for Isurus TOP 1 SA PD: not LG and not INTZ? probably they know that they have 0 chance to beat Isurus.
2018-10-10 01:54
LG and INTZ in Pro League NA
2018-10-10 03:15
Why they still inviting international teams i mean, Sharks have Europe level, why they don't play the ESL Pro League Europe? It's so unfair.

They can’t even qualify to Premier...
2018-10-10 03:21
That's why they come to SA to steal our qualifiers xDDD
2018-10-10 03:36
Same with LG in the qualifiers of tournaments (in NA is very bad).

They could, they show very good improvement recently against good Europe teams, like Valiance, Windigo and AGO. But, I heard that they could change their GH to Brazil. Bc of it, they aren´t playing any Division of ESEA.
