It has been reported that both Valve and ESL have decided to fully cancel the ESL One Los Angeles Major due to the Coronavirus Crisis. 

ESL One Los Angeles Major was scheduled to begin on Sunday, March 15th and NA fans were elated to finally have a DPC Major on home soil. Sadly, they will have to wait even longer now. 

Shortly after the United States President, Donald Trump, ordered a  travel suspension that would limit the “entry of most foreign nationals who have been in certain European countries at any point during the 14 days prior to their scheduled arrival to the United States.” the event was canceled. 

Some teams such as Team Adroit and Team Aster had already been reporting issues with obtaining US Visas. Others are potentially already in the US as bootcamping in the area the week/days prior to the event is not uncommon. 

As of now, there has been no official announcement from ESL so it is unclear what will happen next regarding if the event is postponed and rescheduled or is it fully cancelled. There is also no information yet for ticket holders and any refund status or process.
