During the last year, we witnessed two action-packed seasons of A1 Adria League filled with high-tier competition and incredible esports stories that unfolded at the Reboot Infogamer finals. QLASH Gaming’s Nikola was crowned the undisputed, back-to-back Clash Royale champion after winning both the 3rd and 4th season, while in the CS:GO part, ex-BLUEJAYS managed to dethrone Team uNIQUE in front of a fully-packed A1 5G arena at the Infogamer finals. reqvam was crowned champion in the third season of Hearthstone but also lost the title to Paljuha in November – and ultimately we saw Tim 123 and Level Up splitting the prey in the Dota2 tournament.
Another year of amazing Esports action
2020 will continue in a similar fashion! A1 Adria League returns with two new action-packed seasons of amazing esports action. In the 5th season, Adria gamers will get the opportunity to compete in four games – Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Clash Royale as returning titles will be joined by FIFA20 and Brawl Stars!
Just like in our previous adventures, we want A1 Adria League to be a proving ground for up-and-coming Esports talents in the region. Considering the threats of the COVID-19 crisis, the fifth season will be fully-played online, and we see it as a perfect opportunity to provide a spotlight for some new Esports communities to show their finest players and teams.
While both Hearthstone and DOTA2 were spectacular to watch and we saw regional players of the highest calibre competing, we decided to put it on hold for the upcoming two seasons. We want to thank everyone from the Hearthstone and DOTA2 world – staff, talent, players and fans that helped make the last two seasons great for everyone.
Brawl Stars in the fifth Season!
Brawl Stars has been taking the world of mobile Esports by storm! After witnessing some great efforts by Supercell on building competitive foundations with their Monthly Championship Challenge, we have decided to test the regional waters provide a platform for Adria Brawlers to showcase their skill.
The qualifiers for Brawl Stars will begin on the 7th of May and will be played every Thursday for the following seven weeks. The qualifiers will be played in a single-elimination format, while double-elimination will decide the best team in the playoffs. The team that has not been eliminated in an open qualifier will be declared the winner of that week’s qualifier.
Every qualifier brings points that are distributed in the following way:
- First place – 100 points
- Second place – 80 points
- Third place – 60 points
- Fourth place – 40 points
- Fifth to eight place – 25 points
The teams with most points in all the seven open qualifiers will earn a spot in the online playoffs where they will play the double-elimination format.
What are you waiting for? Charge your phones and tablets, enter the A1 Adria League arena and show us who is the best regional Brawler!
Clash Royale in the fifth Season!
The fifth season will feature only one open qualifier for Clash Royale, while the other competitors will get direct invites to the tournament. The best team from the single-elimination qualifier will advance to the Round-Robin Group Stage (each of the competitors play each other). The first four teams from the Group Stage will advance to the playoffs where we will be featuring the Gauntlet format. All of the playoffs teams will be able to make one roster change by contacting the A1 Adria League management. The roster change must not be a player that competed during the season, and the change needs to be submitted at least 48 hours before the start of the playoffs.
The back-to-back champion Nikola is once again considered the favourite for winning the next season – will he finally be dethroned, or will he remain the Astralis of A1 Adria League Clash Royale? It’s up to you, competitors.
FIFA20 in the fifth Season!
After three long years, FIFA is coming back to the big stage as we are ready to find out who will steal the throne from Edinho. The development of Adria community has been a joy to watch thus far and we are eager to find out who are the best regional competitors at this moment.
The FIFA20 League will begin with the Open qualifiers – an unlimited number of players will be able to participate in the seven single-elimination open qualifiers. The matches during the qualifiers will be played in BO1 mode until the best four teams are decided. The first four teams will play BO3 games and the best team will be decided.
Every qualifier brings points, and they are split in the following manner:
- First place – 100 points
- Second place – 70 points
- Third place – 50 points
- Fourth place – 40 points
- Fifth to eight place – 20 points
- Ninth to sixteenth place – 10 points
Eight players with the most points earned through the qualifiers will be competing in the second stage of the tournament – the SWISS League. Competitors will be paired against each other using a set of rules designed to ensure that each competitor plays versus an opponent with a similar running score, but not the same opponent more than once. The players that successfully secure three wins will advance to the single-elimination BO3 playoffs.
We are excited to see the best dribbles, free kicks and Tiki-Taka players that this region can offer. Who will repeat Edinho’s success from the first season this time?
CS:GO in the fifth Season!
A1 Adria League has been the home to superstars for three years now.

The Serbian powerhouse JUGGERNAUTS, our reigning champions are constantly showing good results on the European scene and had some great runs in Minor and FLASHPOINT qualifiers.
