Americas Minor SA closed qualifier set to start

StarLadder has revealed the initial match-ups for the South American closed qualifier for the Americas Minor.

Running from June 4-6, the qualifier will see 16 teams compete in a best-of-three double-elimination bracket for two tickets to the Americas Minor.

Seven invited teams will be joined by nine qualified sides in this exciting qualifier, headlined by three squads currently in the top 50 in Isurus (No.33), Sharks (No.39) and INTZ (No.45).

Isurus will face TRZ in the first round of the bracket

The Argentinian team will be looking to build on their recent results, after beating Complexity in ESL Pro League and taking a map off Renegades at DreamHack Masters Dallas. Sharks are back in Brazil after another bootcamp in Portugal, while INTZ will greatly welcome the reunion with Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes, who stayed in his homeland after DreamHack Open Rio due to personal problems.

So many teams on similar level, very hard to predict. But the lack of DETONA makes it easier for Isurus, that's for sure.
