Manchester to host ESL Prem spring finals for first time ever

The ESL UK & Ireland Premiership Spring Season Finals will be played live in Manchester for the first time.
The finals will take place in front of a live audience that ESL says will be bigger than ever before.

ESL recently announced the Prem will be taken on tour this time round – and Manchester is the first stop.

Two Premiership titles – Rainbow Six Siege and CSGO – will have their finals take place at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester on March 30th and 31st.

In the previous seasons of the ESL Premiership, the finals have taken place in ESL’s local Studio One in Leicester, or were part of larger gaming events like MCM Comic Con or EGX.

ESL UK is now looking to evolve the ESL Premiership Season Finals into ‘self-standing’ esports events, starting off in Manchester.

James Dean, Managing Director of ESL UK, said: ‘Taking the Premiership on tour has been an ambition of ours for a while now.

“We felt it was time the community deserved its own standalone event and thanks to the amazing support from teams, players, fans and the hard work of the ESL UK team we’ll be presenting this season’s finals in Manchester end of March.

“The event will be a fantastic opportunity for the community to meet and have a great time together while celebrating the UK’s best in CSGO and Rainbow Six Siege.’

Individual tickets to each of the finals, as well as weekend passes, will be going live at 9am GMT on Friday February 22nd via esl.im/r6sfinal and esl.im/csgofinals.
