In 2020, ESL and DreamHack will host a series of CS: GO tournaments called ESL Pro Tour, with a total prize pool of $5 million. Representatives of organizations believe that this will help novice players show their full potential and break into the professional stage, esports calendar site Entowr announced on Monday.

ESL Pro Tour includes 20 championships from ESL and DreamHack. Participants will be divided into two categories – Challenger and Masters. The first consists of DreamHack Open, ESEA MDL and ESL National Championships and will help players break into the Masters category, where they will play for $250,000 in tournaments.

Masters include such championships as ESL One, IEM and DreamHack Masters, and ESL Pro League.

By participating in the ESL Pro Tour, players will earn points and slots in two major championships — the Masters Championship, which will be held in Katowice and Cologne. The organizers promise to announce more details on September 28th.
