Team Belgium are through to the WESG EU & CIS Regional Finals after topping the Benelux qualifier with a 2-1 win over Team Netherlands in the final.

Eight teams, determined by a series of open pre-qualifiers, competed at Firstlook Festival 2017, in Utrecht, over the weekend for the lion's share of a $4,000 prize pool and the chance to represent the Benelux region at the WESG EU & CIS Regional Finals, in Barcelona.

In the grand final, Team Belgium, featuring LDLC duo Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans and Antoine "to1nou" Pirard, managed to overcome a Netherlands team headlined by former LowLandLions member Vincent "v1N" Brouwer. The Belgian team's 19-17 and 16-11 victories on Cobblestone and Nuke, respectively, sandwiched the Dutchmen's 16-10 success on Overpass.

Ex6TenZ will once again lead Belgium at a WESG event

Team Belgium will be making two changes to their roster for the WESG EU & CIS Regional Finals, with Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom and Younes "YOUYOU" Ait Lalla coming on for Jonathan "splyyy" Rivas and Alexandre "Styff" Palate. to1nou explained to HLTV.org that it was only because of team commitments that the duo could not take part in the qualifiers.

This means that Belgium will travel to Barcelona with:

Belgium Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans
Belgium Antoine "to1nou" Pirard
Belgium Faris "Faris" Ait Lalla
Belgium Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom
