Look out, World
It started in the year 2000.
We had a dream. We had a vision. We had bedrooms, basements and LAN cafés with barely-working connections. We had no idea how far we’d come.
MILLIONs of FANS LATER
Esports is now a global phenomenon.
Sold out arenas. Record breaking streams. Fans cheering for the new generation of legends and teams - with more players joining us every day, on all levels.
We helped turn an underground movement into the world’s fastest-growing sport.
Our Leagues & Tournaments. From Zero to Hero!
For every player there is the right league. For each skill the right start into your own esports career. For every fan the biggest spectacles to celebrate the legends who made it all the way to the top.
A key part of our mission is to make the competitive ladder as easy to understand as possible for everyone involved, be it competitors, fans or sponsors.
Everything starts with the players. Esports allows athletes from around the world to compete and train with each other. We can bring down borders by playing across them. Many of the barriers that make it difficult to follow careers in traditional sports don’t exist in our world.
We believe in strong amateur and semi-professional scenes that allow a path to professional play. We believe in developing local scenes that allow entry into global competition - and inspire them to become masters of esports.
Go head-to-head with the most professional players in the world, use this chance to challenge them.
A stage for creators
ESL was made for gamers by gamers. The same kind of creativity that goes into figuring out how to complete through levels and make game-changing plays online affects everything we do. We believe that creativity and the creators themselves should be enabled and celebrated just like the biggest victories of esport athletes.
We created this new visual world to provide a better experience across the board for everyone we interact with.
The future is coming
Over the next months, we will update our products so all tournaments and events benefit from our new look. This is only a first glimpse into a new world, but we could not wait to show you some ideas. Look for it!
The journey of esports has written many unique stories and creates the legends that developed their own career - the same way esports as a whole entered the biggest stages around the world.
Esport is Collective
Esports is all about the community. There would be no ESL and no esports without the countless hours pro and amateur players put in to take their games to new heights. We want to build platforms and products that allow them to rise to stardom and the brand refresh will allow us to tell their stories in ways we couldn’t before. This is why we need your help in this new era.
nothing without you
ESL is our community – we want you to help shape where we go next.
