For both Europe and North America, CEVO will be organizing the ESWC female qualifiers, taking place from June 6-7. Sign-ups for both qualifiers are now open.
A total of eight teams will travel to Montreal, Canada to fight for a share of the $15,000 prize pool reserved for the female tournament taking place on July 9-10.
Only ex-3DMAX are confirmed as of now as last year's champions, but the application process was closed yesterday, May 28th, meaning we will know the three remaining invitees in the foreseeable future.

The remaining four teams will come from a couple of qualifiers, one for North American female teams and one for European teams, each handing out two spots at the main tournament in Montreal.
Both qualifiers will be played in a double-elimination bracket, with best-of-threes in the upper bracket and best-of-ones in the lower bracket, and they will be open to a limited number of teams only.
Both qualifier days, June 6th and 7th, will begin at noon local-time (CEST/EST). Interested teams can sign up for a $5 fee per player on the CEVO website.
