The Electronic Sports League has announced its acquisition of E-Sports Entertainment Association, a community leader in the world of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
ESL and ESEA recently collaborated in creating the ESL ESEA Pro League, the largest CS:GO league in the game’s history, currently in its second season. This partnership is sure to keep the momentum going.
This announcement comes on the heels of ESL’s recent studio expansion in Burbank, California.
Co-Founder of ESL Jens Hilgers is confident these actions will continue the company’s domination, allowing the ESL to “[drive] the charge in regards to integrity in eSports as the industry continues to grow and expand in complexity.”
ESEA’s current team will continue to manage operations, and neither the ESEA brand or community will be affected by this news.
Both ESEA and ESL hold high standards for integrity—ESEA being a leading force in anti-cheating technology in CS:GO, and ESL’s denouncement of performance enhancement drugs.
