One of the best teams from Sweden to date, fnatic has officially accepted their invitation as the team to compete in ESL One Cologne 2019 to come.
They have been part of the team competing in the title dubbed “Cathedral Of Counter-Strike “ since their first appearance in 2014. With this, they have been invited to ESL One Cologne 6 times in a row.
The Swedish team became the 7th team invited to the event which was held at the Lanxess Arena, Cologne, Germany to win a total prize pool of US $ 300,000 or around 4.2 billion rupiah.
Fnatic is one of the former holders of the ESL One Cologne trophy, to be precise in 2015. This trophy is also their third major win, which has yet to increase.
Several other well-known teams that have been confirmed to attend are Astralis, FaZe, Natus Vincere, BIG, NiP, and MIBR. There are still at least 5 invitation slots that will be given to the chosen team of organizers of this event, ESL.
Meanwhile, the remaining 4 slots will be filled by qualifying winners from Europe, North America and Asia. It seems that the journey to fight for the slot to ESL One Cologne 2019 is still quite long. Until now, the qualifiers have only reached the regional open qualification round.
