Dear Cologne Fans,
Unfortunately, the return to the Cathedral of Counter-Strike will have to wait longer than we had anticipated and planned for. We have continuously strived to bring Counter-Strike back to the LANXESS arena this year, but with a heavy heart we have had to make the decision for IEM Cologne 2021 (previously ESL One) to not happen with a live-audience in 2021.
IEM Cologne 2021:
06 - 18 July | $1,000,000 | 24 Teams | no audience | LAN Studio Event
IEM Cologne 2022:
15 - 17 July | $1,000,000 | 24 Teams | with audience | Live at LANXESS
The recent name change to IEM Cologne is not going to affect the validity of your originally purchased tickets for either ESL One Cologne 2020 or ESL One Cologne 2021! If you’ve purchased your ticket via Eventbrite, you can request a refund directly in your account using the email address you purchased your ticket with. If you bought your ticket via Evenbrite, contact their support team here and request a refund. If you purchased your ticket at any other selling point, you can request a refund there by showing them this update to prove that we, as the event organizer, officially allow refunds. Please contact our support team via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions!
Once again, we want to thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you in 2022. We are eager to be back in the LANXESS arena with all of you who have made and will continue to the event what is known for in the past and future.
Your ESL Team
