HappyFeet drops out of ESL One Hamburg 2017

HappyFeet won’t participate at ESL One Hamburg 2017, the first Major of the season, due to Visa issues.

HappyFeet qualified for ESL One Hamburg 2017 after defeating WG.Unity, Fire Dragoon, and Clutch Gamers in the SEA qualifiers. In the best-of-five Grand Finals versus CG they proved their worth with a decisive 3-0 victory. You can read our complete recap here.

We won’t be able to attend ESL One Hamburg 2017 because of Visa issues. We tried our best to secure our visas but still it was up to the final decision of the German Embassy.

Time constraints and several issues came up while we were processing our visas. Then again, we would like to thank Senator Bam Aquino and his team for trying their best to get us through, Games and Amusements Board for issuing the players their licenses and endorsing the team and to everyone who supported us through thick and thin!

The 2017-2018 season has just started, We will use this as a motivation to get stronger. #BounceBackPenguins

The ESL Major features a $1,000,000 prize and 1,500 Pro Circuit Points. Eight teams will battle at Barclaycard Arena, in Hamburg, Germany from October 26th to 29th.
