It’s nice to see the CSGO community coming together to do some good.
ESL announced on Friday that they would donate a total of 125,000 dollars to disaster relief in Ukraine together with the teams who form the Louvre Agreement with them.
As announced on the broadcast for Pro League Season 15, the money will be going to disaster relief organisations like UNHCR, Amnesty International, and the Red Cross.
The Louvre Agreement includes a number of pro teams, though it’s unclear from the ESL statement if every team will be donating or just a group of them.
The teams included are Astralis, BIG, Complexity, Evil Geniuses, ENCE, FaZe Clan, Fnatic, Furia, G2 Esports, Mousesports, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Team Liquid, and Team Vitality.
It was also announced this week that Gambit, the second team prohibited from playing under their organisation’s name due to connections to the Russian government, will be playing in Pro League under a neutral name.
The Gambit players have not yet declared what name they’ll be competing under when Group Three kicks off later this month.
Their decision to play does mean that the teams from both Russian-based organisations that are banned from ESL will be competing since VP announced priorly that they’ll be competing as The Outsiders.
