Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

DeKay: ESL Pro League to be exclusively streamed on YouTube Gaming

The upcoming ESL Pro League will be streamed exclusively on YouTube Gaming as the result of a partnership between YouTube and the World Esports Association, according to sources with knowledge of the decision.

Season 5 of ESL Pro League will begin on Feb. 7 and be broadcast every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on the official ESL YouTube channel. The Season 5 LAN Finals will take place June 3-4 in Dallas, Texas, marking a return to North America for the first time since Season 2, according to a source.

Cloud9 will look to defend its title after posting a 25-1 online record and then beating SK Gaming — in SK’s home country — during the Season 4 grand final in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

ESL did not respond to a request for comment.
