ESL Pro League Season 7 Prize Pool For Qualifiers & Global Finals - Tipify

Esports News – Admit it, you are as excited as the players when it comes to prize pools sponsors give away every tournament. You’re in luck as ESL Pro League Season 7 revealed the $1,000,000 prize pool distribution for the winning teams and participating regions.

Aside from the combined efforts of ESL and ESEA, the massive prize pool and the event itself were made possible through the participation of Intel MSI, Gameflip, NeedforSeat, Betway, XFINITY, Paysafecard, Logitech G, Mountain Dew League, ESEA, DBLTAP, and Facebook.

Prize pool distribution

A small percentage and probably about a quarter of the prize pool will be given to teams that will not advance the Global Finals, including the 8th-14th placers in the European online qualifier, 7th-12th placers in the North American online qualifiers, and 3rd-8th placers in the Asia Pacific offline qualifiers. The leading CS:GO teams or the rest that were not mentioned will compete for the Global Finals with a much bigger prize pool.

The $250,000 prize pool will be distributed accordingly:

EUROPE

  • 1st-7th placers – LAN Finals
  • 8th place – $18,000
  • 9th place – $17,000
  • 10th place – $16,000
  • 11th place – $15,000
  • 12th place – $14,000
  • 13th place – $13,000
  • 14th place – $12,000

NORTH AMERICA

  • 1st-6th placers – Finals
  • 7th place – $17,000
  • 8th place – $16,000
  • 9th place – $15,000
  • 10th place – $14,000
  • 11th place – $13,000
  • 12th place -$12,000

ASIA-PACIFIC

  • 1st-2th placers – Finals
  • 3rd-4th placers – $12,000
  • 5th-6th placers – $9,500

TOTAL PER REGION

  • EUROPE – $105,000
  • NORTH AMERICA – $87,000
  • ASIA-PACIFIC – $58,000

The participating teams that will qualify for the next CS:GO tournament in Dallas, Texas will automatically receive a minimum of $20,000, notwithstanding their region or online rankings. Consequently, the six-team in the playoffs are all guaranteed to receive a $55,000 reward, while the winner will take home the $250,000 prize and an Intel Grand Slam point.

The Global Finals prize pool will be distributed accordingly:

GLOBAL FINALS

  • 1st place -$250,000
  • 2nd place – $110,000
  • 3rd-4th placers – $55,000
  • 5th to 6th placers – $32,000
  • 7th to 8th placers – $24,000
  • 9th to 12th placers -$22,000
  • 13th-16th placers – $20,000

Other notable changes

This year’s season of ESL Pro League attracted a larger number of regions and hopefully, a much larger number of audience and viewership. The event introduces four more additional teams, ESL plans to use the exact same format for all of the upcoming major CS:GO competitions. From 12 teams in the previous seasons, there will be 16 teams and a double-elimination group stage before the actual playoffs.
