How can we compete?


All participants must be 18 or older to compete!


There will be 16 available spots for this minor. Twelve of these spots will go to current Pro League or Challenger League teams, while the remaining spots will be determined through online qualifiers, one per region: North America, Latin America, and Europe (with the open APAC spot given through invitation).

 

Pro & Challenger League spots will be first come, first served. Teams have until Wednesday at 9:00 AM PDT to determine if they will be participating in this event. On that time, the form to sign up (sent to PL & CL teams privately) will activate, and the first twelve teams to fill out the forms are locked in for the next step, which will be presenting proof of travel*.

 

*Note: Teams who already reside in Las Vegas, NV will not need to provide proof of travel

 

Any other team who wishes to enter the online tournament for a qualifying spot can do so by signing up through the links below. All teams that qualify for the event through the online tournament will receive a limited stipend for their travel & accommodations ($5,000 USD for EU and LATAM teams and $2,500 USD for NA teams).
