Road to Rio Asia

ESL One: Road to Rio Asia

ESL One Rio was scheduled to be one of this year's total two majors for CS: GO, but as the situation looks now due to the outbreak of the corona virus, it will be the only one for the year. The plan is for the major to take off in Rio de Janeiro from November 9-22. Under the current situation, it is not possible to guarantee that the tournament will be playable, but the qualification for the tournament will be played online, which changes parts of the program. The qualification is divided into six regions (Europe, CIS, North America, South America, Asia, Oceania) and in all regions the law on points will be fought which will later lead to places for the major, which will contain a total of 24 teams from all over the world. These locations will be distributed as follows between the regions:

Europe: 10 teams

North America: 6 teams

CIS: 5 teams

South America: 1 team

Oceania: 1 team

Asia: 1 teams

Only one team from qualifying in Asia will qualify for ESL One Rio and they will start in the Contenders stage.
