CPH Games qual. groups announced
The qualification groups for the Copenhagen Games 2016 have now been revealed as sixty teams split into groups of four will battle it out for the eight qualification spots.
The Øksnehallen exhibition centre, located in Copenhagen, will be holding the 2016 edition of the Copenhagen Games where €30,000 will be up for grabs. The event will start with an on-site open qualifier on March 23 where eight teams will qualify for the main tournament and will face the eight invited teams.
The qualifier will feature 60 teams that will try to end up in the top two of their groups. After the group stage thirty teams will be left and they will play in a best-of-three knockout stage where in order to qualify, they will have to be one of the last eight teams, meaning a squad must win two best-of-three series to earn a spot.
