ESL Rainbow Six Premiership returns without Natus Vincere for 2020 Spring Season

Details have been announced for the Spring Season of ESL’s Rainbow Six Premiership, with champions Natus Vincere stepping away from the tournament.
ESL Rainbow Six Premiership returns without Natus Vincere for 2020 Spring Season

The ESL Rainbow Six Premiership, aimed at teams in the United Kingdom and Ireland, is set to return with a £20,000 prize pool for the 2020 Spring Season. 

The new season will begin on 27th February, culminating in the finals at De Montfort University’s The Venue in Leicester on Saturday 28th March.  

Natus Vincere, who won both the ESL Premiership Summer and Winter finals last year, won’t be returning for the 2020 season citing other commitments – likely turning their focus towards international tournaments and the Pro League Season 11.  

The team managed to win the Pro League Season 10 Finals in November, although their performance so far in Season 11 hasn’t lived up to expectations – failing to make it out of the group stages at the Six Invitational 2020.

The ESL Rainbow Six Premiership will start with group stages from 27th February on a single round-robin format, with the following three weeks featuring two playdays per week to decide the first two finalists.

The last two final spots will be decided in the Playoffs on Saturday 21st March, ahead of the finals the following week on 28th March.
