ESL and TEG Live have announced today that both the League of Legends OPL Finals and ESL Pro Tour for Warcraft 3 will be held at MEO 2020. The OPL will be held at Margaret Court Arena and will feature as part of an expanded stage in the arena for MEO 2020. In 2019, Mammoth Esports won the OPL Finals and so the event will be again, closely watched by fans.
Warcraft 3 is a brand-new event to MEO and will be held as a Warcraft 3: Reforged tournament. The ESL Pro Tour for Warcraft 3: Reforged will see international players competing in this remastered version of one of esports’ classic titles.
Both the OPL Finals and Warcraft 3 tournament join the already announced IEM Melbourne 2020 CS:GO tournament at MEO, making 2020 the biggest year for the event yet.
