ESL opened Request For Proposals for new ESL Members
Tournament operator ESL began accepting applications from organizations that want to join the ESL Pro League as a partner. The corresponding announcement was published on the company's official website.
Until March 25, everyone can send an application, which will be subsequently considered by the league management and the twelve current partner teams. The selection process will be completed by September of this year when ESL Pro League Season 14 begins.
ESL Pro League partnership program was introduced in early 2020. Astralis, Complexity, ENCE, Evil Geniuses, FaZe, fnatic, G2, mousesports, NAVI, NiP, Liquid, Vitality and 100 Thieves signed agreements with the league. 100 Thieves subsequently left the CS:GO competition scene and terminated the contract.
All partner teams participate in Pro League revenue sharing, as well as IEM Series and ESL One tournaments. According to a published press release, each partner was promised at least $1 million in revenue in 2020, but the organizations received an average of 20% more at the end of last year.
