Running from November 22-30, the online qualifier will feature eight teams, who will compete for a single spot at the Champions Cup Finals, which will be held from December 19-22 in Malta and will have $300,000 on offer.
Over nine game days, these teams will battle it out in two GSL groups in best-of-three series.
