The next stage of the FACEIT London Major has been finalized.

FACEIT has revealed the 32 teams that will compete in the online Closed Qualifiers for the upcoming London Major, which will take place in September as the 13th Major in CS:GO history. Those qualifiers will decide who’ll move on to the regional Minor tournaments, where teams will be playing in an offline setting for the first time during this Valve Major cycle. The Americas Closed Qualifier will be from June 22 to 24, while the European Closed Qualifier will be from June 29 to July 1.

All four Minor tournaments will be held next month in the Twickenham Stadium, where England holds its national Rugby matches. Each Minor will feature eight teams, and only two teams from each Minor will gain New Challenger status for the London Major.
