ESL Pro Tour Announced

The CS:GO circuit operates, according to the announcement, with intent to provide one narrative for fans to follow throughout all of the Pro Tour's competitions.

The ESL Pro Tour will feature CORSAIR DreamHack Masters, ESL One, Intel Extreme Masters and ESL Pro League events under its Masters tier. The ESL National Championship, DreamHack Open and the Mountain Dew League will coincide under the Challenger tier.

"With this change to our offering we will have a more complete and simpler path from zero to hero for aspiring players, a more compelling story to follow for existing CS:GO fans and a much more transparent structure for new esports fans. This will be the ultimate expression of our purpose: to create a world where everybody can be somebody," ESL said in its announcement.

More information on the Pro Tour will be announced Sept. 28 at ESL One New York.
