There's quite a bit of hype building for the sixth season of the ESL Impact League, the all-female Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) event that has seen tremendous growth. Tournament organizer ESL has announced important dates and some details about ESL Impact League Season 6.

First up, the dates! We'll see two open qualifiers run for each region, namely Europe, North America, and South America, followed by an online league and, finally, a LAN final to be held in November in Stockholm, Sweden. Check out the precise dates below.
