European Qualifiers

Europe’s qualifiers have already seen the rise of top teams from the North, South-West and South-East, with four teams per region claiming a position in the European finals. The open qualifier remains (July 22nd – 24th), so there’s still a chance for your favorite team to grab one of the last four spots.

The top 16 teams from all regions will meet July 26th-27th to determine six of the teams going to Cologne. Find details on the qualified teams and the open qualifier at the European qualifier portal at

The second qualifier starts on July 19th, and concludes with the finals on the 20th. Head to the Oceanic portal for more details:
