ESEA Premier Season 37 Europe groups determined
Eighteen teams will vie for a single spot in ESL Pro League Season 14.
ESEA has revealed the groups for Season 37 of its Premier division, with BIG and Endpoint heading up opposite sides after being relegated from ESL Pro League as a result of not being a partner team and not being high enough on the ESL World Rankings for a direct invite.
In Group B, Sprout and Endpoint are joined by Sinners and Movistar Riders, as well as by a trio of Polish teams - AGO, Anonymo, and Izako Boars. Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski's side recently impressed by qualifying for Flashpoint 3 with wins over Sprout, ENCE, and Dignitas in the closed qualifier, while AGO ended Premier Season 37 in third place following an 0-2 loss to the former Winstrike roster.
The 18 teams will fight through a best-of-three round-robin group stage, with the top four sides from each group advancing to the double-elimination playoffs. The bracket stage will culminate with a best-of-five grand final with a one-map advantage for the upper bracket team, with the winner earning a spot in ESL Pro League Season 14.
The groups for ESEA Premier Season 37 Europe are as follows:
