TeamFordzilla Cup

Also central on day 3: eSport! In the final of the North America division of the ESL One Cologne 2020, the players of Evil Geniuses were able to prevail against the opponents of Team Liquid over five exciting matches in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Another very popular eSports title was also given a stage through the League of Legends Prime League All-Stars event. Top players chosen by fans came together in colourful teams and competed against each other for over four hours. In the end the team around Agurin (Unicorns Of Love Sexy Edition) defeated the team of Rocklho (OP innogy eSport).

Fans of racing games got their money's worth during the semi-final rounds of the TeamFordzilla Cup, while strategists enjoyed the second day of the Iron Harvest ESL pre-season tournament.
