Earlier today, Team Vitality CS:GO in-game leader, Nathan "NBK" Schmitt announced that the team had to forfeit its slot in ESL One New York 2019. This was due to an overbooked schedule that would make it quite difficult for the team to attend the event. He also said that the team had notified ESL since Sunday.
To Sprout's good fortune, ESL most likely had too little time to find a replacement for Vitality, giving their opponents a free pass on that round of the tournament. Sprout will now face the winner of CR4ZY vs mousesports in the semi-final.
With ESL One New York out of the way, Vitality will be heading for Dallas, Texas to compete in the MDL S31 Europe Finals and the MDL S31 Global Challenge from 12-14 July. A win here would qualify them for ESL Pro League S10. By July 18-21, the team will move on to IEM Chicago.
