There will be many ESL fixtures scheduled in the Middle East, Asia and North America to help generate more revenue for all the clubs involved in the tournament, according to reports.
The likes of Dubai, New York and Shanghai have reportedly been touted as the current hotspots.

The iconic Yankee Stadium in New York scheduled a pre-season friendly between Liverpool, one of the ESL founding members, and Sporting CP in 2019.
Chinese Super League matches have been held at the Beijing National Stadium (aka The Bird's Nest) with new stadiums being built across Qatar for the 2022 World Cup.
The Middle East - in particular Saudi Arabia - has become a popular destination to stage big sporting events having held the world heavyweight championship fight between Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua in December 2019.
Speaking to Spanish outlet El Chiringuito, he explained: "Many important clubs in Spain, Italy and UK want to find a solution to a very bad financial situation.
"The only way is to play more competitive games. If instead of playing the CL, Super League helps the clubs to recover the lost earnings.
"Here at Real Madrid we've lost a lot of money, we are all going through a very bad situation.
"When there is no profit, the only way is to play more competitive games during the week.
"The Super League will save the clubs financially."
The idea of playing ESL games outside of Europe during the week could prove to be difficult but if the teams involved get kicked out of their respective leagues, then it could become a reality.
