ESL takes action against academy teams

1
ESL has made an executive decision to prohibit organizations from fielding two teams at ESL One Cologne, meaning academy teams will be unable to partake in the event if an organization's main team is also looking to qualify, or has already been invited.
On April 22, a ruling was published regarding the practice of organizations with academy teams by ESL, one of the largest tournament organizers in esports.

The company will not be allowing academy squads to compete at its upcoming 250,000 USD event ESL One Cologne, in case the organizations' main squads are either looking to compete in the event's qualifiers or have previously received a direct invitation to the event.

Organizations that are currently fielding two squads looking to qualify for the event, or who have already been invited to the main event can be exempt from the ruling. The organization must submit a written notice to ESL explaining that the academy team has either been sold, or all its player contracts with the academy team terminated at least four weeks before the start of the event on July 7.

"There are several teams competing in leagues organized by ESL that currently share owners who have been given 18 months to sell off their teams by WESA. But this ruling is immediate, which is truly sad, and I hope there can be a better solution to this in the future," Fnatic Academy's Maikil "Golden" Selim tells Fragbite.

One organization that will be affected by the ruling is Fnatic. The organization's main squad has received a direct invitation to ESL One Cologne, while it's academy roster is looking to qualify for the event through the tournament's open qualifier this weekend.

Following a catastrophic debut at DreamHack Masters Malmo, where FaZe fell short against NiP and Gambit en route to a group stage elimination, NiKo’s team delivered a masterpiece of a performance at ESL One New York. In perhaps the most dominant tier-one tournament victory of all-time in Counter-Strike, FaZe finished the event with 7-0 map record, allowing only a Liquid comeback from a 4-11 deficit to win over seven rounds against them, and averaging a ridiculous 16-6 score in their championship run. Could FaZe already be the best team around?
