Starting next week, ESL has released the groups and schedule for ESL One Cologne. The event which will feature sixteen of the worlds best teams will run from July 2 to 7 and have $300,000 up for grabs.

The double elimination group stage will be played prior to the event moving into the Lanxess-Arena for the playoffs.

Liquid headlines Group A, however, it won’t be an easy road with Natus Vincere, FaZe, mousesports, and more to compete with.

Group B favors Astralis & ENCE, but it’s safe to assume that you shouldn’t count out Vitality, MIBR, and others.

  • Natus Vincere
  • FaZe
  • FURIA
  • NRG
  • Renegades
  • mousesports
  • MVP PK

Group B:

  • Astralis
  • MIBR
