Astralis invited to ESL One New York

ESL has announced that Astralis have accepted an invitation to compete at this year's ESL One event in New York.

The Danish giants are the first team confirmed for the North American event, which will be held from September 26-29 at the Barclays Center, with $200,000 on offer.

This will be the third time that Astralis will be in attendance at an ESL One New York event, with the Danes having only missed last year's edition. In 2016, they went out in the Swiss stage with a 1-3 record, while in the following year, they were sent packing in the double-elimination group stage.

Astralis confirmed at ESL One New York

Astralis, who will also attend ESL One Cologne next month, are currently second in the race for the $1 million Intel Grand Slam Season 2 prize, with one tournament victory, at the IEM Katowice Major. They are trailing Liquid, who won IEM Sydney and DreamHack Masters Dallas.

Following Astralis' unveiling, there are now just five invites left to announce, with the final two spots in this eight-team tournament being determined by online qualifiers, held in Europe and North America.

Great invite! Best team in the world at the moment!

I'm pretty sure they've always been able to but when they have to attend so many events they somehow thought it was a good Idea to prioritize Blast pro over the other tournaments lol.

they said they didnt want to go to dallas or starseires in shanghai because they are too far away which effected device (both around 8000km). but new york is 7000km so really they are giving pity excuses
2019-06-06 18:57
they didnt say Dallas was because of travel distance, it was due to ECS

my bad but shanghai was due to travel but new york is near or less the same distance so..
