ESL has announced ESL One Hamburg as the replacement to its annual ESL One Frankfurt event.
The yearly German Dota 2 event has been held in Frankfurt for the past three years usually around June. This year however the even is making the switch to Hamburg and will take place in late October.
The Barclaycard Arena will host eight top teams who will battle it out for a share of $250,000 on October 28th and 29th.
