As many know already, 2020 will only have one major, which is the ESL One: Rio 2020 major. This tournament will take place in Brazil in November. Therefore ESL has come up with a new qualification system, in the form of a brand new tournament circuit which is ESL One: Road to Rio.

This circuit of tournaments will have an event for each region capable of qualifying for the major. These regions are Europe, CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), SA (South America), NA (North America), Oceania, and Asia.

This means all the best teams in the world will have a chance to qualify, and hopefully result in one of the most competitive majors ever seen. So get ready for ESL One: Road to Rio.
