Nigma is the final team that will take part in this tournament.
With just one week away from ESL One Birmingham 2020, we now know the names of all teams that will be going there. As you probably know by now, this event will be divided into regions.
Needless to say, the most interesting and also the most competitive region here is Europe and CIS. This is also the region that has the most representatives - 16 in total.
Did you think we were gonna miss #ESLOne Birmingham?
We’re happy to officially announce our participation in the tournament starting May 24th.

Here are the names of all teams that will be attending this tournament. Even though it’s online, it will still have a prize pool of $200K, which is a lot of money.
- Team Liquid
- Team Secret
- Natus Vincere
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
- Virtus.Pro Prodigy
- Cyber Legacy
- Team Unique
- Aggressive Mode
- Team Spirit
- Gambit Esports
Keep it in mind that the schedule for this incredible tournament is not ready yet. Nevertheless, it will be super interesting to see which of these teams will come on top. Even though some might say that Team Secret is the big favorite, this might not be necessarily true.
Sure, they are perhaps the best team in the world right now, there is no arguing that. However, teams such as Alliance, VP Prodigy and OG are always capable of delivering a nasty surprise to Clement "Puppey" Ivanov and his team-mates.
Team Nigma so far
Nigma’s last really strong performance was during the WeSave! tournament, which took place around two months ago. Back then, they played really well and proved to everyone that they want to win something big this year.
Nevertheless, their most recent performance hasn’t been that great. Despite having amazing players in their roster, it just seems like they are missing out on something, judging from what we saw.
Who knows, this might be the event that they need in order to bounce back yet again. We will see whether this is true or not once the ESL One Birmingham 2020 Online begins, which will happen on May 24. The event will continue for around two weeks, so we will have a lot of great series to watch.
