Next weekend, the ESL studios in Cologne, Germany, will see the best four teams from both the European and North American divisions meet in order to determine the champion of the ESL ESEA CS:GO Pro League’s very first season. After a full set of 22 matches each, below are the eight teams who’ll be clashing in Cologne from the 2nd to 5th of July!

Europe North America
Fnatic Cloud9
Virtus.pro Keyd Stars
Team SoloMid Luminosity Gaming
Team EnVyUs Counter Logic Gaming

Europe

On the European side, three of the four teams have won a CS:GO Major. Fnatic, reigning champion of ESL One Katowice 2015, earned themselves the first spot during the divisional play, but not as gloriously as some might have expected. With Fnatic even in points with Virtus.pro and having only a three-point advantage over EnVyUs and TSM, it looks like we’ll be seeing the four best European teams take on this challenge on an almost even level.

North America

While Cloud9, Keyd Stars and CLG already having had the chance to showcase their skills at CS:GO Major events, Luminosity Gaming will get their first opportunity to win some fan hearts at the ESL ESEA Pro League finals. Unlike the European division, North America’s top teams have put some noticeable space between each other. Cloud9 dominated the scene and only lost three matches, with CLG having taken the fourth spot only because they scored more rounds than the fifth-placed Team Liquid.
