Second IEM Fall EU Open qualifier set to start
MAD Lions and Fiend became the first two teams who secured spots in the IEM Fall Europe closed qualifier on Sunday, coming out on top of the first of four open qualifiers ahead of the final RMR tournament leading up to PGL Major Stockholm.
Three more open qualifiers are still to be played to determine six more teams joining eight invited lineups in the closed qualifier, with the second set to kick off at 18:00 .
The event will only be covered in HLTV matches from the top-16 stage onwards, but in this article we will post updates about the several rounds before that, making sure you stay up-to-date with who is still in the running and who isn't, what notable matches are coming up and where you can watch them (if available).
Keep in mind that if you don't see your favorite team attending the tournament, it's possible that they have already been invited to either the main event or the closed qualifier, especially if they already have points in the RMR standings from previous tournaments in the series. Those invites have not been revealed yet but have likely already been determined.
Below are some of the most notable teams who have signed up for the second open qualifier (but are yet to check-in and confirm their attendance).
