The first Qualifier will take place from April 30th to May 2nd, 2021: SIGN UP HERE (deadline to register: April 30th, 4PM CEST)

The dates of the 2nd and 3rd Qualifiers will be communicated at a later date.


Each Qualifier will be open to teams across Europe and consist of a single elimination bracket. Up until the Round of 16, matches will be played in Best-of-one. Starting from the Round of 16 and until the Final, matches will be played in Best-of-three.

The first Qualifier will be seeded randomly, while the second and third Qualifiers will then be seeded based on the overall point standings.

The top 5 teams* across all 3 tournaments will qualify to compete in the Group Stage of the Challenger League.

*if a team finishing in the top 5 of the Qualifiers final ranking, wins a national championship that qualifies to the EU Challenger League, then this team is considered as having qualified through this national championship. The Qualifier slot thus goes to the next in line in the Qualifiers ranking.

Upon registering, a notification will be sent to the teams to inform them of when they need to return for check-in.

One hour and a half before the start of the tournament, the check-in will begin.

Any team that has not checked in at least 30 minutes before the start of the tournament will be removed. The remaining slot will be attributed to any team that missed out on a slot because the tournament was already full.


Here is the point distribution for each Qualifier. The number of points granted to each team at the end of the 3 tournaments will determine their position in the final ranking.
