ESL is proud to announce the ESL Mobile Open presented by AT&T; a continental United States-based tournament where anyone and everyone can join the competition and show off their skills. The best of the best will earn a shot at glory on the main stages of some of the biggest Esports events in 2019, including Dreamhack Dallas, ESL One New York, and Dreamhack Atlanta.
ESL is proud to feature three different, exciting games giving a variety of competitive communities the opportunity to join the fray. For our inaugural season, the following games will be included:
- Asphalt 9: Legends
- Clash of Clans
- PUBG MOBILE
The first year of The ESL Mobile Open will run across 3 seasons, with the inaugural season launching March 18, 2019. Each season will be comprised of 3 phases, starting with Open Qualifier play allowing players of all skill levels to grind through 4 weeks of competition. Next, the field will be cut to the top 50% of players who move onto the Closed Qualifier stage. From that 50%, the field will be narrowed even further where the best players will see themselves featured in live broadcasts produced by ESL. Coming out of those matches, the cream of the crop will punch their tickets to compete on the biggest stages in esports and cement their legacy among esports legends.
To register and play Clash of Clans and PUBG MOBILE, simply head to the ESL Mobile Open website and sign up through ESL Play today! For Asphalt 9: Legends, you can enter through the Daily Events tab in-game starting March 18th.
