FACEIT Major Qualifier Details released

The full schedule of Open Qualifiers for the FACEIT Major 2018 has been announced, with the CIS region kicking off first on May 14th.

FACEIT have announced the details for the qualifiers to the upcoming London Major, with some fairly sizeable differences in each part.

Further details about the Major itself are yet to be released, but any announcements will be found on their dedicated Major website. Tickets for the event have been released on sale.

Each open qualifier will be in a best-of-one single elimination format, with a maximum of 1,024 teams competing. The first Open Qualifier to take place is the one for the CIS Region, with the four qualifiers set to be played out by the end of May. Asia and South America will follow suit, with all of their Open Qualifiers done before the start of June as well. Considering those regions historically had trouble securing visas in time, FACEIT's schedule should help all of the qualified teams attend the tournament in the end.

In June, the two main Counter-Strike regions, Europe and North America, will have their own Open Qualifiers played out over the first two weeks.
