The ESL Meisterschaft (ESLM) is a series of German esport events created in 2015 after a rebranding of the ESL Pro Series Germany (EPS Germany), which was established in 2002. While League of Legends has been a part of ESL Meisterschaft since its creation, in ESL Pro Series, League of Legends was included for the first time in Summer 2011.
Five weekly cups with 16 teams (8 from the last season, 8 from a qualifier) each are held, which function as the group stage qualification via a point-system. The top eight teams qualify for the group stage - two best-of-one double elimination brackets - and qualify for the next season. The four teams that get out of the group stage compete offline in a best-of-3 single elimination bracket. Since Winter 2015, the winners of the Winter and Spring seasons also get one spot at the EU Challenger Series qualifier.
