Create your fantasy team today!

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

With $5,500 at each manager’s disposal, you can invest in up to five players who will earn you points based on their match performances. You don’t have to use all five slots and you’ll also have the opportunity to switch your roster around after the group stages and the semifinals if you’re not happy with your team.

Check out the detailed CS:GO rules and the weapon skin prizes right here.

League of Legends

In ESL Fantasy League of Legends, you will not only be able to pick up five players but also a team of your choice. ESL Fantasy League of Legends managers will have $6,600 to work with and have to think carefully about their picks since teams will be locked for the entirety of the World Championship.

The top 20 managers at the end of Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2015 will earn Riot points based on their performance.

StarCraft II

The StarCraft II league gives you the opportunity to acquire one captain and three players who will collect points for you depending on their match wins and overall tournament results. Losses reflect harshly on your fantasy performance, so choose wisely!

You can read up on the StarCraft II ruleset in further detail right here.

The first place winners of the each league will win a HyperX Cloud II headset, with further prizes differing between the leagues. Check out the full prize overview for each league on the IEM Expo ESL Fantasy hub.
