The group draw for ESL One Cologne has been made, with the 16 participants having learned their fate in the tournament.

From August 20-23, ESL will host the next Valve-sponsored CS:GO major, with 16 teams from all over the world battling it out for a share of the $250,000 prize pool.
The tournament will kick off with a best-of-one, double-elimination group stage with a twist: at the end of day one, all groups will be played out in the Upper Bracket.
The four group winners will advance straight into the quarter-finals, and then the groups will be redrawn, pairing the 12 remaining sides against new opponents to determine the final teams that will make it to the playoffs.




The quarter-finals, which will be played in a best-of-three, single-elimination format, will be seeded to prevent potential group stage rematches before the grand finals.
