ESL One New York will return to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the fourth year this September, the tournament organizer announced Tuesday.


The premier Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event in New York City comes back to the Barclays Center Sept. 28-29 with a $200,000 prize pool.


According to the press release, six teams will be invited, and two more will earn spots at the event through North American and European qualifiers. As per usual, there will be a double-elimination GSL group stage that transitions into a single-elimination playoff bracket with a best-of-five grand final.


“ESL One is a flagship event for ESL, and we are thrilled to be back at Barclays Center for the fourth year in a row. Along with the world’s best CS:GO competition, we are bringing mobile gaming to the forefront with the Season Two Mobile Open Finals. ESL One New York promises to be one of North America’s most unforgettable esports events of the year," Yvette Martinez-Rea, CEO, ESL North America said in a press release.


Mousesports currently sits as reigning ESL One New York champions defeating Team Liquid in the last grand final.
