ESL One Cologne schedule released

ESL has released the full schedule for the upcoming CS:GO major in Cologne.

Sixteen teams from all over the world will be taking part in the next Valve-sponsored major tournament, which will be held from August 20-23 across two locations: the MMC studios and the Lanxess Arena.

On the first day of the tournament, all four groups will be played out in the Upper Bracket. The four group winners will go straight into the quarter-finals, and then the groups will be redrawn, which means that the remaining 12 teams will be paired against new opponents in the Lower Bracket.
