The launch of Baltic eSports League
BESL Pro - Baltic eSports League
Baltic state countries are home for an active gaming enthusiast community, that regularly competes in various tournaments and games resulting in brilliant victories and bitter defeats. During the last couple of years, without society noticing, eSports and its community has grown to be one of the most played and watched sports around the globe.
It’s time to showcase this eSports phenomenon to Baltic state residents. Not only this sensation has taken over the globe and sold out sports arenas around the world, it has also made tradicional sports clubs act and invest into eSports. Popular traditional sports teams like Paris St. Germain, Manchester City, Philadelphia 76ers and many more have already acquired their professional eSports teams.
LATTELECOM – technology and innovation leader in Baltics, together with GOEXANIMO – one of the leading eSports organisations in Baltic states, has joined forces to create Baltic eSports League (BESL Pro). This league will gather all the best players from 3 Baltic state countries, thus not only providing a platform where players can grow, develop and prove themselves, but also - possibly pave their way to worldwide success.
The first season of BESL Pro will feature two disciplines (CS:GO and League of Legends) and a combined prize pool of 10 500 EUR. Starting from 26th of February, 10 best Baltic state teams in each discipline will battle for nine weeks in order to acquire one of the four spots in the finals which are going to be played out during BESL Pro EXPO taking place from 26th till 27th of May at Ķipsala exhibition center in Riga, Latvia.
