ESL One will be returning to Frankfurt in 2016, as announced today on the official ESL One website.

For the third year in a row, ESL One Frankfurt will be taking place at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt, Germany, which features a 500 square meter screen for those who wish to attend the tournament in person to cheer on their favorite team as they compete for their slice of the $250,000 prize pool.

The two-day event will run from the 18th to the 19th of June and will also be hosting a festival outside of the arena. Included in the festival is what ESL claims is, “The widest variety of activities yet, ensuring that there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether your interest lies in esports, cosplay, or content creation, we have something for you at ESL One Frankfurt 2016.”

There will be four different ticket options available, spanning from the simple Rank Ticket that grants you access to in-house seating, to the Aegis Experience tier that boasts perks such as behind the scenes tours and access to the private lounge. Ticket sales begin at 6:00pm CET on December 17th and can be found here.

The announcement comes just a week after ESL revealed plans for the first-ever ESL One Manila, which will take place in April.
