Imperial to take part in EPL Season 17 Conference
Imperial have received an invite to EPL Season 17 Conference, which is the qualifying event for the seventeenth season of the ESL Pro League. The tournament organizers announced this via their official Twitter account.
The Brazilian squad was invited thanks to a second-place finish at ESL Challenger Melbourne 2022. Initially, the invitation was supposed to go to paiN, who won the event, however, this team had already qualified through ESL Challenger League Season 41, as a result of which the invite was handed to Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and company.
EPL Season 17 Conference will feature sixteen teams competing for six spots in ESL Pro League Season 17. Currently, the only confirmed participants of the event are Imperial, paiN, Movistar Riders, Falcons and Rare Atom, with eleven more set to be determined following the results of regional and national qualifying tournaments.
It should be reminded that EPL Season 17 Conference will take place in early 2023. As of now, the exact schedule and venue of the tournament are unknown.
