ESL Pro League Season 14 schedule revealed
Eleven days are left before the return of tier-one action following the tournament break.
ESL has revealed the full schedule of the ESL Pro League Season 14 group stage, the first tier-one event that will take place in the new season following the end of the summer tournament break.
The groups will be played out separately, with Group A scheduled for August 16-20, followed by Group B on August 21-26, Group C on August 27-31, and Group D on September 1-5. The league will run almost non-stop during the three-week span, with just one day off in the middle of Group B.
Each day three best-of-three matches will be played, starting at 13:30 , 16:45 , and 20:00 , with the exception of the final days of each group, which will see all three matches played concurrently in the last time slot.
ESL Pro League Season 14 will see tier-one teams compete for the first time since the conclusion of IEM Cologne in mid-July. Much to the disappointment of the community, the tournament will take place entirely online, but it promises to bring new stories to life nonetheless as several teams will debut new rosters there, including Bad News Bears with Paytyn "junior" Johnson, BIG with Nicklas "gade" Gade, and fnatic with Alex "ALEX" McMeekin and William "mezii" Merriman.
Below you can find the opening matchups and kick-off days for each group:
Monday, August 16 (Group A)
Saturday, August 21 (Group B)
Friday, August 27 (Group C)
Wednesday, September 1 (Group D)
