Coronavirus outbreak forces ESL Pro League Season 11 to go online-only

The cancellation of E3 due to the Covid-19 coronavirus is the big news of the day, but it’s just one of many events being cancelled or modified. ESL has now announced that the upcoming ESL Pro League Season 11 CS:GO tournament will be played online, and that the finals will be moved from the 1stBank Center in Denver, Colorado, to a studio location in Europe, with no live audience.

“This decision was largely motivated by the fact that Malta, the country of our originally planned studio location, has instituted a wide range of travel restrictions and quarantine regulations as of today. We fully support all measures aimed at containing the Covid-19 dynamics as much as possible. These travel restrictions have made it impossible for a large amount of staff and the majority of teams to make their way to the planned season location,” ESL said in a statement.
