forZe replaces Renegades at ESL Pro League Season 14
Team forZe will take the place of Renegades among the participants of the fourteenth season of ESL Pro League. The reason for the replacement was the inability of the Australians to fly to Europe due to the restrictions imposed by the authorities of the Pacific country against the background of the coronavirus pandemic.
