Tournament operator ESL has officially confirmed that Gambit Esports will play at ESL Pro League Season 15 under the "Players" tag. Recall that earlier the Russian eSports organization allowed its players to play at the tournament in a neutral status.
Gambit Esports players have agreed to participate in ESL Pro League Season 15 under neutral conditions. They will perform under the name "Players" throughout the competition. Thus, all participants of the championship are confirmed.
Recall that earlier ESL suspended the Virtus.pro and Gambit Esports teams from participating in their tournaments, including the upcoming ESL Pro League Season 15. The tournament operator explained his decision by the fact that the organizations are somehow connected with the Russian Government. However, ESL did not restrict the players and allowed them to compete in the championship, but under a neutral status.
Immediately after that, the Virtus.pro organization agreed to such conditions, allowing its players to take part in the championship. As a result, the team will compete at ESL Pro League Season 15 under the "Outsiders" tag.
In turn, Gambit Esports kept silent for a long time, leaving their fans in the dark. In addition, on the eve of all the players of the team removed the mention of the organization in their social networks. This gave rise to rumors regarding the sale of the roster of another esports organization.
ESL Pro League Season 15 runs from March 9 to April 10 in Germany. Gambit Esports players will play in the same group as Movistar Riders, BIG, GODSENT, Team Liquid and Party Astronauts.
