FRENCH CANADIANS to miss the Americas Minor
According to Keven "PLAYER1" Champagne's recent Tweets, his team—FRENCH CANADIANS—will not attend the Americas Minor due to visa issues.
FRENCH CANADIANS made headlines earlier this week with a win over Immortals that eliminated the Brazilian side and got Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik and co. a slot at the upcoming Americas Minor Championship for the ELEAGUE 2018 Major.
However, despite the fact that the LAN will take place in Toronto, Canada, FRENCH CANADIANS will not be able to attend the event due to visa issues. It is more than likely that the player that can't make the trip is Mert "REOVA" Bayrak, a Turkish national living in the United States.
Due to rules which don't allow standins at the Minor, FRENCH CANADIANS will have to concede their slot. Their replacement is not known at this point, with any one of Immortals, SoaR and Misfits being a potential one, as they all finished the Swiss group stage with a 2-2 record.
The team list for the Americas Minor currently looks like this:

For those asking why, it's simple. One of our player has visa issues and stand-ins aren't allowed.— Keven Champagne (@PL1CSGO) October 18, 2017
