The final three teams to compete at the $250,000 IEM Shanghai will be found through three qualifiers for the APAC region, the organizer announced today.

IEM Shanghai 2018 will take place on August 1-6, during the CS:GO player break, which will see this IEM stop being smaller in the number of teams attending and with the world's elite squads missing from the team list.

Three more teams from the Asia-Pacific region will join TyLoo in Shanghai

Earlier this month, alongside the announcement of the event, five of the eight attending teams were revealed with the likes of NRG, TyLoo and Virtus.pro making the list. Now, it has been announced that the final three spots will be filled through qualifiers aimed at the Asia-Pacific region: China, Asia, and Australia & New Zealand (ANZ).

The full team list will, therefore, look as follows:

United States NRG
China TyLoo
Oceania ANZ Qualifier
Asia Asia Qualifier

All three qualifiers will have the same format. Single-elimination open qualifiers will start it off, where BO1s will be played up until the semi-finals, which will be BO3.

Both semi-final winners will advance to the closed qualifier, where they will be joined by six invited teams. The closed qualifier will use a double-elimination BO3 format, with the best team earning a spot at IEM Shanghai.

The qualifiers will take place on the following days:

Asia

June 16-17 - Open Qualifier
June 18-20 - Closed Qualifier

China

June 16-17 - Open Qualifier
June 21-23 - Closed Qualifier

ANZ

June 23-24 - Open Qualifier
June 25-27 - Closed Qualifier
