ESB League – BF1 Season 3 is here!


Incursions is finally upon us, and now that it’s available on every platform it’s time to kick of our 3rd Battlefield 1 ESB League season. We are proud to announce that we have partnered with LeroyMerlin to power this season and to help us build the future of competitive Battlefield.

Season 3 will focus on Incursions only, and will mark the start of a new era on our league website, with improved player profile/statistics and the return of our popular ESB All-Stars event from Battlefield 4!

In this article you will find all the information you need to qualify and participate in the event, and don’t forget that sign-ups are already open!

Don’t forget to also sign-up for our Incursions Championship with a 2,000€ Prizepool! Find out more by clicking HERE.


Prizes & Regions:

For Season 3 we will be featuring the following leagues on PS4, PC and X1, and a 1,000€ Prizepool
  • Battlefield 1 – 5v5 Incursions – PS4 EU – 500€ Prizepool
  • Battlefield 1 – 5v5 Incurisons – PC EU – 500€ Prizepool
  • Battlefield 1 – 5v5 Incursions – X1 EU – No current Prizepool
  • Battlefield 1 – 5v5 Incursions – PS4 NA – No current Prizepool



There will be 2 Qualifiers for each Platform/Region. The Qualifiers have a One Day Cup, single elimination bracket format. Since a new game mode is being played, no team will have a guaranteed spot from Season 2 carry over, meaning that each team will be required to play in the qualifiers if they wish to participate in Season 3.

Each Qualifier you participate in, will earn you points that count towards acquiring a spot in our league depending on how well your team does in each Qualifier. After both Qualifiers are over, the final ranking will be published and the Top teams will earn their spot in a division of their respective Platform/Region. If there are enough teams competing in our Qualifiers, we will open extra Divisions where necessary. (Note: Division spots will be assigned based on each team’s final ranking. Ranks 1-8 will earn a spot in Division 1, 9-16 in Division 2, and 17-24 in Division 3.)
