Two teams have made it through to ESL One Belo Horizonte from the European qualifiers: Space Soldiers, through the upper bracket, and BIG, through the lower bracket.
The first out of the two teams to earn their ticket to Belo Horizonte was Space Soldiers, who made it to the final of the qualifier through the upper bracket by beating Envy, North, and Gambit, dropping a single map in the first round of the qualifier before winning the other two matches by 2-0.
This marks another successful qualifier for the Turkish team, which has in the recent past made it to DreamHack Masters Marseille, IEM Sydney, and now ESL One Belo Horizonte, all through qualifiers.
The second team to make it through the qualifier to Belo Horizonte is BIG. The German team took a little bit of a harder route than Space Soldiers, by going through the losers' bracket. The Germans started out winning against Quantum Bellator Fire, but were then taken knocked out of the upper bracket by Gambit.
With four teams already invited, and the two aforementioned teams from the European qualifier, there are just two more spots left for the $200,000 tournament in Brazil which will be handed to the winners of the North American and South American qualifiers. The full list as of now is:
