ESL confirmed two LAN events for 2022
LANs are coming back.
ESL announced two LAN events in 2022. They will take place in June and September.
ESL announced two LANs outside of Europe in 2022. These events are IEM Dallas and ESL Challenger Melbourne. Both events were last hosted in 2019 and won by Liquid with Twistzz on the roster. IEM Dallas is expected to be bigger than ESL Challenger Melbourne as the tournament hosted in Australia will be similar to Dreamhack Open.
Previously, ESL announced more tournaments to be hosted in the first half of the year. Three IEM tournaments will take place in Katowice, Cologne, and China, while ESL Challenger events will be hosted in Valencia and Rotterdam. Also, ESL Pro League Season 16 and ESL Pro League Season 17 Conference are expected to take place in Sweden.
