Schedule And Key Dates
With the current COVID-19 pandemic, Ubisoft understandably doesn't have the full schedule yet.
We do know that the qualifiers will take place in the first half of 2021, with the finals being held in the summer.
According to Ubi's press release, "14 countries and regions will get a direct invite to the Final Stage and, additionally, 31 other countries will take part in online qualifiers to compete for one of the six remaining available slots. Ultimately, 20 teams will be competing in the Final Stage of the World Cup."
Starting September 14, each country and region begins picking a national committee of three team managers, and later this year, those managers will pick their teams.
