Dates and location for WCA 2017 Finals announced

The tournament will take place at the end of April, with teams from different parts of the world meeting up in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China.

WCA 2017 Finals were originally scheduled for the end of last year, December 17-22, but ended up being postponed to an "unspecified date in 2018" due to a congested schedule and the Christmas holidays.

The new date is now known - the tournament will take place on April 29-30 in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China.

Gambit were one of the two European teams to qualify for the WCA 2017 finals

Details such as the prize pool and the total number of teams are not known at the moment, however, for the original date, eight teams were confirmed.

HLTV.org has learned that one of them, Chiefs, was now forced to pull out due to potential overlaps. You can find the remaining seven squads, whose participation has not been confirmed yet, below:

Kazakhstan Gambit Denmark Heroic
Iraq Next Generation Iraq Valour
Brazil Luminosity Argentina Isurus
Singapore BOOT-d[S]
