Announcing rule changes to the upcoming season 7 of ESL Pro League

ESL Pro League returns for season 7 on February 13th with Europe's and North America's best teams competing for a prize pool of US$1,000,000, and the coveted slots in the season finals taking place in May.

There are a few rule changes to be introduced, before we kick off the first matches in just a couple of weeks:

  • It is no longer possible to down/up from/to academy teams
  • A loan exception was added in national competitions
  • The Emergency Transfer rule was modified to allow transfers in special circumstances that otherwise would be prohibited
  • A Roster Submission Deadline has been added (it has been extended to the 7th of February to give teams that attended the Boston Major more time)

Please find the complete rulesets and regulations in the documents below:
