ESEA runs regular events that allow players in different regions to compete, gain valuable experience, and win prize money! Twice per month, ESEA runs the Cash Cups in Europe, North America, Oceania, Asia-Pacific, South Africa, and South America. There are two sets of Cash Cups, ESEA Cash Cups where anyone can participate and ESL Impact events where only women can participate. Teams only require ESEA Premium or League Pass membership in order to participate so all ESEA League teams can compete in these events without any additional fee.
Teams play best of one until the semi-finals where they will meet stronger teams in the region who are invited directly to the semi-final stage. At that point, they will play in best of three matches to determine the champions.
