ESL, DreamHack, and CSPPA have signed an agreement for the ESL Pro Tour in 2020. The Counter-Strike Professional Players' Association (CSPPA) is an association that helps protect and represent players in the extremely complicated and diverse world of CS esports. This agreement is the first of its kind in esports, but it is modeled after a system that replicates that of traditional sports.
Mads Øland, the CEO of the CSPPA, stated:
"The life of a professional CS:GO player revolves around tournament participation all over the world. This makes the working conditions of players in connection with tournaments a key priority of the CSPPA. In the current tournament landscape, ESL sets the industry standard for such working conditions and with this partnership, ESL has committed to maintain and develop such standards in close cooperation with the CSPPA. The agreement solidifies the working partnership between CSPPA, ESL, and DreamHack and establishes the best possible basis for us to work together on elevating professional CS:GO to the benefit of all stakeholders involved and for the players to deliver a performance which meets the highest standards demanded by the global CS:GO community and the game and its 20-year legacy."
