ESL Managing Director Spike Laurle has confirmed that ESL will be hosting an international event in Sao Paolo later in 2016.
The tentative date fixed for the event is October 2016. ESL have not released much information about this event so far. The step is taken with the hope of improving and developing the esports scene in Brazil which has already seen some strong teams in the game of counter strike.
