With the start of Season 32 still more than a month away, ESEA have announced a new event called the Proving Grounds which will see eight teams in six regions compete for various cash prizes. In North America in particular, teams will be facing off to secure the lion's share of a $5,000 prize pool. This prize pool is a result of ESEA deciding to end support for Team Fortress 2 leagues on their platform and redirect the prize money to CS:GO.

Running during the upcoming player break, which is set to run from July 22nd to August 18th, Proving Grounds will give teams a chance to stay in form and try out their new rosters before Season 32 is set to begin on August 30th. 

The first of the four qualifiers are set to begin next week on July 21st with two teams earning spots in the main event. ESEA have incentivized teams to compete in the early qualifiers by making the seeding for the main event tied to a team's finish in the qualifiers. So, for example coming in first place in the first qualifier grants the highest seed for the main event, while second place gives the second highest seed and so on.

Here are the registration links for each of the four qualifiers:

No, it's essentially an online cup with a bunch of open qualifiers to qualify during the off-season
