The current champions of each regional ESL Premiership will head to the Madrid Gaming Experience from the 27th to 28th of October, for the ESL Clash of Nations. They will meet the 1st and 2nd ranked team in the current season of ESL Master España, for their chance to shine on the Madrid main stage during the Swiss style tournament.

Come the end of week 7 of the current ESL Master España season, if Movistar Riders are present in the 1st or 2nd place spot of the tournament, then 3rd place will receive an automatic invitation. The event will be presented live to the audience inside the ESL Arena where the event is held, as well as streamed on Twitch and on live television within Spain.
The following teams have been selected to participate:
- Envyus Academy
- ex Outlaws
- Movistar Riders
- Winner of the ESL UK Premiership
- ESL Master España Runner-Up #1
- ESL Master España Runner-Up #2
This announcement means that the weekend’s ESL UK Premiership finals only have greater significance. Winning the tournament grants the victor the lion’s share of the £10,500 prizepool, a spot in the EU Mountain Dew League for season 26 and the opportunity to represent the UK on stage in Madrid. Should CeX or Radix eSports win the ESL UK Premiership title, it would be the organisations first LAN appearance within Europe.
