Participating Teams

Back in February, the Brazilian teams were unable to fly to Paris to participate in the tournament, this is the main reason the Invitational saw delays.

Now, the 6 Brazilian teams will be allowed to fly to France, but negative tests are required before they leave and when they return.

One of the Brazilian teams "Wild Card Gaming" will not make it to the event but will still take their 1% of the prize pool ($30,000).

The group stages of the tournament will be held behind closed doors in the player's hotel rooms once they reach Paris.

This will allow them to follow the Covid guideline (10-day quarantine) and still make the playoffs at the venue.

Each team has also been limited to 6 team members per organisation.

If a team is eliminated from the tournament, they have to leave France within 48 hours, again keeping with the guidelines.

Anyone attending the event will need a negative test 72 hours before they leave their country, and isolate for 7 days before they leave and return.
