Welcome to the MTN DEW League

The Mountain Dew League (MDL), an initiative formed through the collaboration between ESL and Mountain Dew, has successfully expanded opportunities for amateur Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) players. MDL gives teams the chance to participate at the professional level, providing a gateway for rising teams to compete in ESL Pro League. Now in its fourth year, MDL has distributed over $500,000 to players from North America and Europe, while the most successful teams went on to compete for a coveted spot in the world's most prestigious professional CS:GO league. In 2018, MDL introduced the Next Big Caster program that created similar opportunity for rising casters, in addition to launching an All-Star Game per season.

Not only do fans have the chance to watch gripping gameplay (or even compete themselves!) but also, some of the best CS:GO pros provide tips and tricks throughout the training season each year to help fans improve their game and take it to the next level.

This year, Mountain Dew League will be powered by MTN DEW® AMP® GAME FUEL® and will have three seasons, spanning across North America, Europe and Australia. To follow this season of MDL make sure to tune-in to twitch.tv/ESEA every Tuesday-Thursday to catch all of the action live!
