Share this article:

The ESL Southeast Europe Championship is back for its exciting tenth edition! Hosted in the largest building in Europe, the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Season X promises to create more amazing stories than ever before. Three fantastic games will be the stars of the show in the coming months:

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

It wouldn’t be ESL SEC without some quality CSGO! Eight teams (five invited, three through Open Qualifiers) will compete in a double round-robin group stage. The top team will get a direct invite to the Offline Finals in November at the Bucharest Gaming Week. The remaining top four will have to fight it out for the second spot and the chance to win a large share of the 5000€ prizepool!

The second of the two Open Qualifiers will take place on the 14th September: Sign up here

League of Legends

ESL SEC is taking the battle to Summoner’s Rift once again with a 4000€ prize pool! To kick off the season three teams must qualify through the Open Qualifiers, joining five invited teams who will then compete in the Regular Season online. A Playoff double elimination system will determine who will advance to the finals and be crowned the champions of Season X!

The Open qualifiers will take place on the 15th and 22nd of September. Sign up here

Brawl Stars

Season X marks the debut of the first ever Brawl Stars season at ESL SEC! It’s taken the mobile gaming world by storm and now it’s the perfect time to show off your skills. Starting on the 31st August, two Open Qualifiers will decide which twelve teams will make it to the Regular Season, with each region having at least two representatives.

Then, three teams will advance though the double round-robin group stage to the Playoffs, with the best team from each group earning a 1 round advantage.

With a prizepool of 6000€ up for grabs and a ticket to the Bucharest Gaming Week Offline Final on the 9th and 10th of November, you’ll want to sign your team up as soon as possible!

The last chance qualifier will be on the 14th September. Sign up here
