The week’s esports fixtures: 14 to 20 May
iGB, in partnership with Bayes Esports Solutions, is proud to present a regular list of fixtures for some of the most popular esports competitions, helping operators looking to expand into the esports market while the traditional sports calendar has been significantly reduced.
This week, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) contest the ESEA Premier Division’s North American leagues top the list in terms of fixtures, with 54 taking place in the coming week. The 34th season began late in April, and runs until 21 July, with last year’s event won by Triumph.
Following in second is another CS:GO tournament, the Svenska Elitserien, with its 2020 Spring Regular Season. That concludes on 21 May.
Next up the Dota 2-focused DPL CDA Professional League 2020 Season 1, run by the China Dota 2 Professional Associaiton (CDA). There are 17 fixtures taking place in that competition, and it runs until 24 May. Another Dota 2 event, also with 17 fixtures, is the ESL One 2020 Birmingham Regional Online League. This was originally meant to be a live event, starting on 26 May and taking place over five days, but was cancelled as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, and repurposed as a series of online leagues.
With a number of League of Legends-led seasons concluding in recent weeks, the schedule for that title has been significantly reduced. Just one fixture takes place in the BRCC 2020 Summer, a Brazil-based event which concludes on 16 May.
