ESL One New York will take place from September 16-17 with six teams already confirmed through direct invitation. This leaves two slots left which will be determined through qualifiers, one for North America and one for Europe.
These qualifiers consist of seven teams that were invited and one team that has won the open qualifier for that region. ESL has announced the teams that have been invited to the closed qualifier.
The matches will last from August 19- 20 with the format being a best of three, single elimination bracket.
From August 14-15, there will be the open qualifier being played as a best of one bracket. The teams participating have not yet been finalized or announced. With a stacked qualifier on both sides, and an already stacked lineup attending New York, expect fireworks.
