FACEIT, the organizers of ESL and DreamHack, announced today that the event will be held in San Diego in April 2023. The event, as of this writing, is set to take place at the San Diego Convention Center from April 7 to 9, 2023. The team didn’t have a ton of details on what would happen in this particular release, but it doesn’t take much guesswork to assume that what we saw in Atlanta this year will probably be the model for their plans in the West. Tickets for the event will go on sale soon; however, the timing of these will be revealed on their social media channels later. For now, here is the trailer and small information released to promote the event.
