ESL appoints Alexander Inglot as ESL Pro League Commissioner

The ATP Board director will be in charge of the new Commissioner’s Office to help deliver on the vision that was laid out in the Louvre Agreement.

ESL has announced that it has appointed a Commissioner for ESL Pro League in collaboration with the 13 partner teams who signed the "Louvre Agreement" in February. Alexander Inglot, a former corporate lawyer who is currently a director on the board of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), will help to create a new collaborative structure for the league, optimise its governance and explore new revenue streams.

The new EPL Commissioner will be joined by Hans Jagnow, President of the German Esports Federation, who will take up the role of VP of Operations. The duo will be focused on building the ESL Pro League brand while making sure that the company's other flagship events, including ESL One and the Intel Extreme Masters, also reflect this new joint approach.

"I have followed CS:GO since 2015 and have witnessed some of the electric atmospheres at events, dating back to ESL One Cologne 2016," Mr. Inglot said in a statement. "The opportunity to take on a key leadership role in this already exhilarating space, surrounded by the best teams in the world and ESL that are both knowledgeable and enthused about what can be: it's an opportunity I could not pass up on.

"The ambition is to achieve an even stronger position in a growing, global billion-dollar business by creating new revenue streams, focusing upon the significant potential in existing media rights and developing new media products for the millions of fans. I will have much to learn, but I am confident that with my experience to date, my respect for the ecosystem and Hans as my right hand, we will combine well to give those already invested in CS:GO and all those who are just about to come on board a renewed sense of anticipation. "

Earlier in the year, ESL Pro League underwent a restructuring that saw the total number of teams competing in the league reduced from 48 to 24, with the tournament organiser looking to centralize their tournament circuit so teams would compete at a single location. After the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to offline tournaments, ESL was forced to move their circuit online, delaying the presentation of their new league experience.
