The Electronic Sports League has announced the talent panel for the season finals of the ESL ESEA Pro League.
Starting on Thursday, July 2, ESL's esports arena, in Cologne, will play host to the offline finals of the inaugural ESL ESEA Pro League season, featuring the top four sides from both the European and the North American divisions.
Half of this season's $500,000 prize pool has already been distributed between all the teams that competed in the online portion of the league, which means that the season finals will have $250,000 on offer. The winner will take home $100,000, the equivalent of a first-place finish at a Valve-sponsored major.
