With three successful seasons in 2019 under its belt, KSL is preparing to make a comeback in October 2019. We saw the likes of protoss player Yoonjong ‘Rain’ Jung and zerg player Mincheol ‘Soulkey’ Kim take home the KSL trophy during the last two seasons. With the second season of 2019 just around the corner, fans are waiting to find out which of their favorite players will jump into the fray to be crowned the fourth KSL champion.
For its fourth season, KSL will be taking place at dedicated Esports stadium NEXON Arena in the heart of downtown Seoul. The NEXON Arena, which is a multipurpose esports cultural complex, is complete with state-of-the-art audio and visual capabilities, as well as convenient facilities that provide fans and players with an excellent competitive experience.
Preparations for the fourth KSL season will start with online registrations, which are scheduled to take place from October 1 through October 9. Online qualifiers will then take place on October 11 and 12, followed by offline qualifiers on October 19. These qualifiers will decide which players will make it to the official round-of-16 roster.
The opening match for KSL season 4 will kick off October 31, and KSL matches will take place every Thursday and Friday following the opening match. The 16 finalists will be competing for the total prize pool of KRW 80 million. Additional information about KSL and its next season can be found on KSL’s official website.
