DH Open London qualifiers unveiled

DreamHack has announced all the details about the qualifying process for the Open event in London.

The next event on the DreamHack Open circuit will take Counter-Strike to the heart of London as the Copper Box Arena will host a $40,000 tournament featuring eight teams.

Five of those teams have been directly invited by DreamHack and will be revealed shortly, while the remaining three spots will be filled through two online qualifiers, one open for all European players, the other exclusive to UK-based teams.

On August 15-16, FACEIT will be hosting two open pre-qualifiers, each one open for up to 256 teams. The top two teams from these cups will then advance to a closed qualifier, in which they will be joined by four invited sides. 

The Copper Box Arena will host DH Open London 

The two finalists of this open qualifier, scheduled for August 17-19, will secure spots at DreamHack Open London.

As for the UK qualifier, it will be hosted by FACEIT on August 23 and will be limited to 128 teams. The winner will be rewarded with a spot at the DreamHack event.

Below you can find the registration links for the qualifiers:

I'm sure they could just move this qualifier to like... the monday or tuesday, spread it across a cup of nights
2015-07-30 15:31
yup, monday would be good cause people going to iseries still have access to the BYOC for the majority of monday meaning if people have to travel they can do it after!

2015-07-30 16:34
They're hosting the UK qualifier during the major!??! Wow. I'm sure the entirety of the UK scene wants to actually watch that instead of playing, Dreamhack... And on the final day of the major, no less.
2015-07-30 16:39
Teams must have five members currently residing in the United Kingdom in order to participate. RIP some "top" (UK wise) teams
2015-07-30 16:50
such as? Infused = full UK EZSkins = full uk Choke = full UK rip cex i guess
2015-07-30 17:27
128 team qualifier though.. will be tough for the UK teams but I hope one of them makes it through.
