FIRST MATCH-UPS REVEALED - ESL PRO LEAGUE TO BE PLAYED ONLINE
Astralis league partner ESL Pro League has revealed the first matches and prize pool for the initial group stage of Season XI. Astralis will play Ninjas in Pyjamas first on March 16.
On Wednesday, March 11, ESL announced that the entirety of ESL Pro League XI will be played online due to health concerns for players, staff, and audience. This is a decision that Astralis fully supports.
IEM Katowice played out without an audience but broke viewership records so both our organization and ESL take solace in the fact that the Counter-Strike community is built by passionate fans who will support the sport, live attendance or not.
Astralis' Head Coach, Danny 'zonic' Sørensen comments on the match-ups and situation.
