ESL Pro League Relegation dates revealed

ESL has revealed the dates of the upcoming relegation tournaments in Europe and North America ahead of the 10th season of Pro League.

The relegation tournaments will take place on August 15-18 in both regions, with the European side of things kicking off at 12:00, followed by the North American brackets at 20:00 on each day.

The process features two stages. In Europe, the pre-relegation stage will include all four last-place finishers from the ninth season — NiP, Windigo, Heretics, and Turkey5 — who will be pitted against each other in a double-elimination bracket, with the winning side keeping a spot in Pro League, while the team who places last will be demoted to MDL.

NiP will face Turkey5 in the opening round of European pre-relegation

Afterward, the second and third-placed teams will join the No. 2 and No. 3 teams from Season 31 of MDL, Sprout and Spirit, in another double-elimination bracket, which will determine two teams advancing to the 10th Pro League Season.

The initial matchups in Europe look as follows:

Pre-Relegation
Sweden NiP vs. Turkey Turkey5
Bulgaria Windigo vs. France Heretics

Relegation
Russia Spirit vs. Pre-Relegation #2
Germany Sprout vs. Pre-Relegation #3

Over in North America, regular season last-place finishers Lazarus, Envy, and INTZ, will join MDL runners-up Singularity in pre-relegation, with the winning side securing a spot in ESL Pro League Season 10.

The other teams will join ATK, who placed third in the last MDL season, in the following relegation bracket for another spot in the main league.

Pre-Relegation
United States Lazarus vs. United States Singularity
United States Envy vs. Brazil INTZ

Relegation
South Africa ATK vs. Pre-Relegation #2
Pre-Relegation #3 vs. Pre-Relegation #4

2019-08-08 22:42
Eneshan is turkish name i think they just live in different countries
2019-08-08 22:45
Exactly! Also, Beyaz's name is Beyazıt which also is a Turkish name and he is also Turkish. His situation is pretty much the same as Maj3r's.
2019-08-08 22:53
Didnt know xdd
2019-08-08 23:35
It seems they have problems with simple math, can even count properly.
2019-08-09 11:55
I think the other two are of Turkish descent, the names sound Turkish, even the nicknames
