Manchester will be the home of the new edition of the Home Ground
At the moment we do not know if this edition will be able to count on the presence of the public or if the fans will only be able to watch the tournament through the transmission platforms. What is known is that the historical O2 Victoria Warehouse It will be the home of the LAN tournament and will receive eight great teams. Fans will see a star-studded team roster featuring the best teams in the world, as well as some new faces.
In this new edition there will be two open qualification places so that the aspiring teams from Europe can register for the open qualifiers and thus have the opportunity to win a place on the stage in December. A closed qualifier will also take place in Turkey, expanding the pool of talent available to compete at the highest level.
