ESL add Ancient to the map pool at IEM Summer 2021

Tournament operator ESL has announced the addition of the Ancient map to all ESL Pro Tour events, starting next month. The decision was made after consultation with the Counter-Strike Professional Players Association (CSPPA) and representatives of ESL Pro League partner teams.

The next ESL Pro Tour event to include Ancient is IEM Summer 2021. The sixteen-team competition will take place June 3-13 online in the European region.

Earlier we heard that Ancient will participate in the championship Elisa Invitational Summer 2021, which also starts June 3.

Recall that Valve has changed the list of maps for tournaments on May 4. Ancient replaced Train and will only be added to the RMR tournaments map pool after the spring series of regional championships.
