  • General Cup rules


Every winner of each Staffcup will win a prize. They are allowed to pick something from the Exclusive ESL Items at the ESL Shop.
In addition to that we will have a raffle with all participants. The lucky one will win a mousepad.

To claim your price please write a supportticket to Staffcups (Global). If you want to get more information about the prizes visit the Staffcups Portal.

To promote fairness to volunteers - all paid staff or contractors from ESL wont get the ESL Shop prize when they win a Staffcup as they get paid for their work.
