The organizers of the event decided to invite Virtus.pro and Heroic. Earlier the regional qualifiers were held in Europe and North America, with Fragsters and Luminisoty qualifying for the main event from these two regions. The organizers also held a special Iberian qualifier between teams from Spain and Portugal – in the grand finals Giants Gaming defeated OFFSET Esports. Overall there will be eight participating teams, the missing three teams will get direct invites. The main event will be held on July 12-14 at Feria Valencia. First, the teams will compete in two GSL groups, then top two teams from each group will advance to the single-elimination playoffs bracket.
