Tournament featured an $850,000 total prize pool as well as many remarkable performances
Cologne/New York/Stockholm – The 15th season of ESL Pro League has ended as FaZe Clan secured the title, beating ENCE Esports 3-1 in the grand final. The tournament marks ESL Pro League’s return to in-person competitions since ESL Pro League Season 10 in Odense, Denmark, in 2019 and is the first season to feature the new Conference stage as part of the tournament.
Alex Inglot, Commissioner of the ESL Pro League, commented saying “Season 15 of the ESL Pro League marked yet another relentless month of top-tier CS:GO. I’m especially proud that the new EPL Conference stage is really showcasing how the path to pro is genuinely open to everyone, and indeed, I would like to commend Movistar Riders in particular for such a great run all the way to the quarter-finals of this last season. Congratulations as well to our two finalists, Louvre Agreement partners ENCE and FaZe, who both fought hard for their first ESL Pro League trophy and gave us a rollercoaster final Sunday.”
With the teams gathering in Düsseldorf, Germany, to battle it out for a share of the $850,000 total prize pool, fans worldwide tuned in via livestreams to cheer on their favorites. This global support ensured a peak CCU of 413,000* while also leading to more than 30 million* total hours watched during the five-week-long tournament.
Twenty-four teams entered the group stage portion of ESL Pro League on March 9, with four groups of six teams each. The top three teams of each group then made it through to the season’s final stage, with the number one team being seeded directly into the quarterfinals while the number two and three seeds had to compete in the Round of 12.
