Thanks to an incredibly dominant performance throughout the entire tournament, none other than Virtus.pro we’re able to secure themselves their first ever Major trophy at ESL One Hamburg power by Intel! This feat makes Solo’s squad the first team of the 2017-18 Pro Circuit to win a Major, catapulting them into first place in the current Pro Circuit rankings.

Virtus.pro’s road to the ESL One Hamburg trophy was littered with some of the strongest teams from across all regions, but none of them were able to put a stop to the aggressive playstyle laid down by the bears.

Virtus.pro’s road to victory

Virtus.pro 1-0 Keen Gaming

Virtus.pro 2-1 Newbee

Virtus.pro 2-0 Team Secret

Thank you

This wouldn’t have been possible without the passionate fans cheering from the stands in the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg and all the viewers that tuned into the various streams from around the world! We can’t wait to keep the hype going and are already looking forward to our next Pro Circuit stop - the ESL One Genting 2018 Minor!
