With online matches played weekly on ESEA's servers, ESL will be hosting the live finals events in Cologne and Los Angeles. Two seasons total will be run throughout 2015 and boast a gigantic $500,000 cash prize each. Set as the biggest cash offer to date in CS:GO history, the two organizations have said they will be increasing this prize pot in the future.

Set to kick off on May 4th 2015, more information will be released very soon. ESEA president and CEO Eric Thunberg stated that "ESEA is where the pros play" and is said to be partaking in this partnership with ESL in order to help grow the global competitive CS:GO scene.

If you're worried that this will disrupt other CS:GO tournaments running throughout the year, ESL's official statement pointed out that the "multi-month Pro League seasons scheduled around Valve-supported majors aim to consolidate the Counter-Strike market by providing consistent high quality content to the global esports audience."
