Update, May 21: Team Liquid have won the Rainbow Six Siege Season 7 Pro League Finals. They are the first Brazilian or Latin American team, and the first major esports organisation, to win the championship.
Eight teams travelled to Atlantic City in New Jersey, US, over the weekend. The final match came down to Team Liquid and Penta Sports, a German esports team who have won the Pro League Finals three times previously. Liquid beat Penta 2-1, with the last match taking place on Siege’s Consulate map, and claimed the championship – which includes the top share of the tournament’s $275,000 USD prize pool, around $167,000.

Season 8 is set to begin in June, and Ubisoft announced during the Finals that there would be some changes coming to the next Pro League – which include moving from a three-month tournament to six months, with more of a true league format. There will be twice as many teams competing.
