ENCE has been confirmed as the eighth team to be invited to ESL One Cologne. The event will feature a total of 16 teams, 12 from invites (4 remaining) and four from qualifiers.
The Finnish squad will be joining the likes of Astralis, Natus Vincere, FaZe, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and more. ENCE has had a big run of success since the IEM Katowice Major where they showed they could compete on the biggest of stages and hasn’t slowed down yet.
ESL One Cologne is scheduled to run from July 5 to 7 at the LANXESS Arena in Germany. A total of 16 teams will be fighting for the lion’s share of the $300,000 prize purse and a trophy from one of the most prestigious events in Counter-Strike.
Last years finalists were both announced prior to ENCE as Na’Vi and BIG look to repeat their runs. With a few more big name teams certainly being looked at, this event should be an amazing chance for rosters to show what they’ve got at the halfway more in 2019.
Current ESL One Cologne team list:
– Natus Vincere
– NA Qualifier
– European Qualifier #1
– European Qualifier #2
– Asian Qualifier #2
