Fnatic Invited to ESL One New York

Fnatic received its invitation to ESL One New York Tuesday becoming the fourth team to be invited to the tournament, joining the ranks of Team Liquid, FaZe Clan and mousesports. There is still one invitation left and the remaining three spots will be filled with teams that make it through a qualifier.

ESL One New York will be held on Sept. 26-30 and has a prize pool of $250,000. There will be two double elimination groups with the top two finishers from each group moving on to the elimination round.

Fnatic recently made a roster change, switching out Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson for Richard "Xizt" Landstrom so this will be a good chance for Xizt to prove his worth on the big stage. It also means Fnatic must practice that much harder this summer in order to establish synergy between its CS:GO players.
