The group stage will play out across 3 days, ending on May 16. The group stage will start with 16 teams spread into two groups, and it will end with 6 teams moving into the playoffs.
There will be a short break after the group stage but action will continue on May 18 when the playoffs start. We’ll have the quarterfinals on the 18th, the semifinals on the 19th, and the grand final on the 20th. All of the group stage matches will be best of one games, whilst the quarterfinals and semifinals will have best of three matches. The grand final will be a best of 5.
Like mentioned before, the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals features a $750,000 prize pool. $250k will go to first place, $110,000 to second place, and the remaining spread out across the other 16 places.
If you’d like to watch the stream, you’ll be able to find English broadcasts on the ESLGaming.com website and on the ESL Pro League Facebook page. You can also find a Brazilian stream on the ESL CS:GO Brazil Facebook page and a Hungarian stream on Twitch.tv.
Teams Participating In The ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals
As mentioned previously, 16 teams are taking part in the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals. All of these teams gained their placements by participating in the ESL Pro League Season. Because there were no invites, it was an equal opportunity for all teams. Unsurprisingly, though, the 16 team roster is mostly made out of the top tier teams in the world.
Here’s a look at the participating teams and the groups they have been placed in. These groups will determine who will play against who during the group stage.
- Natus Vincere
- MVP PK
- Team Liquid
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
- Space Soldiers
- SK Gaming
- Grayhound Gaming
As you can see, there’s still a slot open in Group Yellow. We’re waiting for the South American qualifiers to come to an end on May 6. Either Furia eSports or Sharks eSports will take this spot.
It’ll be great to see the top teams go up against each other again, but it’ll also be interesting to see whether underdogs like Grayhound or MVP PK will fare well this time around.
