So after the two decided they wanted this match to happen, there was still some work to be done. The managing partner of ESForce, Anton Cherepennikov, promised to inquire to ESL about the possibility of playing the match. Then the Vice President for ESL, Michal Blicharz, stepped in and asked for a date when the match would be played.
And with the help of many, Anton Cherepennikov announced, the match would be on!

So now the only thing that’s left is for the two to get their rosters in order to play in the most hyped game in esports history.
Best of luck to both teams!
