ELEAGUE, the esports organization created by Turner and WME | IMG, will kick off the final round of its Regular Season tomorrow night with European giants Fnatic (runner up of ELEAGUE Season 01), Team Dignitas, and EnVyUs, along with rising North American stars OpTic Gaming, battling for the final two spots in the ELEAGUE Season 02 Playoffs.

On Saturday, Nov. 19, the three remaining teams from Group D will compete in the lower-bracket finals for a chance to join the Friday night winner in the ELEAGUE Playoffs. The observer feed of the Team Dignitas/EnVyUs match will also be available on Twitch.
Last week, Astralis shocked the CS:GO world by winning Group C, dispatching group favorite SK Gaming during the live TBS Showcase. SK Gaming rebounded to secure the second playoff spot as the Brazilians overcame Alternate Attax and ELEAGUE Season 01 semifinalist Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) in the Day 2 finals. Those two teams join Ninjas in Pyjamas, Virtus.Pro, mousesports, and FaZe clan in the ELEAGUE Season 02 Playoffs.
