It's been a wild five weeks since we kicked off the European HCS Pro League and so far we've seen some amazing matchups across the globe. As we enter our fifth and final week we look toward the end of the season and what it holds for our six Pro League Teams.

On Sunday, July 17 the Open Series Finals kick off at 5PM BST and will be streamed live on the Halo Twitch channel. The top 8 teams from Legendary Cup #5 and the top 8 teams by points will compete for a spot in Relegation where they will have the chance to fight against Pro League teams and possibly move on to the Fall Season. This means that this week’s Open Circuit cup is crucial, as it is the final chance for teams to make their way into the Open Circuit Finals.

On July 23, the battle for Fall Season Finals will begin. The teams who place first and second in the Open Circuit Finals advance and face off online against 5th and 6th placed teams from the EU HCS Pro League Summer Season. Relegation will feature a best of seven double elimination bracket and will be streamed live on the Halo Twitch channel. Will we see a new team join the Pro League in the Fall, or will recent roster changes help bump the power of the Summer teams?

The top four teams of the European HCS Pro League will descend upon ESL’s UK Studio and fight it out for a prize pool of $67,000 in front of a live studio audience on July 24. Teams will be seeded based on their Pro League standings and enter a best of seven double elimination tournament.
