ESL Pro League Season 11 group stage schedule revealed
ESL have made public the schedule for the upcoming ESL Pro League Season11 group stage, which starts on Monday, March 16.
The ESL Pro League Season 11 group stage will kick off on March 16 and run through April 4 in Malta before the tournament changes locale to Denver for the finals.
The group stage will feature four groups of six teams playing round-robin best-of-threes. The winners of Group A and B will face off in a play-in that will give them a spot in the semi-finals or quarter-finals, as will the top two teams in Group C and D, while the second and third-place finishers in each group will start their playoff runs in the round of 12.
With the last preparations underway before the start of the competition, it is still unclear what will happen with Heroic's spot in the tournament, as reports about the Danish lineup being bought by FunPlus Phoenix to join Flashpoint 1 as a partner in the new league emerged yesterday.
The action will kick off with Group A and Group B, whose teams will play on March 16-25, followed by the Group C and D matches running from March 26 to April 4.
