One of the most iconic tournaments of all time, ESL One Cologne, is on its way once again. All of the top teams will attend this event that will take place in late august.

Unfortunately, it will be played from the comfort of the players own homes, and not in the famous Lanxess Arena, due to Covid-19. This means that all the great teams will still be participating, but divided into 4 regions (Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania)

But no matter what, the prestige that comes with winning a tournament such as ESL One Cologne, together with a prize pool of 1 million USD, will make this a very interesting tournament to follow.
