The names of all teams that are set to take part in ESL Pro League S10 Finals have come to light. The tournament will be hosted in Odense, Denmark, on December 3-8, offering a prize fund of $600,000.
The qualifying stage for the EPL Season Ten LAN-finals was running in four separate divisions: Europe, America, Asia, and Oceania. The European and American qualifiers were held offline, while the rest of them ran online.
The biggest amount of spots at the final part of the championship was distributed to Europe. There, eight tickets to the LAN event were played off. Two of them were conquered by the best team in the world, Astralis, and the line-up of CIS’ favourites, NAVI. Rosters from America, in their turn, had six slots to fight for. In the end, it was Liquid, MIBR, Evil Geniuses, Sharks, ATK, and 100 Thieves who came into possession of them.
At EPL S10 Finals, Asia and Oceania will be represented by two squads: TYLOO and Grayhound Gaming, respectively. Thus, the honour of the Easters regions will be defended by the same names, just as it was in the previous season. Last time, they finished on the 13-16th place, earning $14,000 each.

Also, this tournament is confirmed as a part of Intel Grand Slam: Season Three.
The Americans of Team Liquid are the reigning champions of EPL, as they took the first place upon completion of the ninth season, winning a $250,000 paycheck. In the competition’s final, TL defeated the French five of G2 Esports with a 3-1 score, whilst Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski got the MVP award from HLTV.org.
