Open qualifiers for Challengers Stage 01 Week 01 take place between 30 – 31 January in Philippines, with a best-of-one match designed to whittle down the competition to the best eight teams in the region.
These eight teams will go on to compete in the main event weekend on 5 -7 February in best-of-three for quarters and semi-finals, followed by a best-of-five in the finals for a spot to compete in the next Challengers event taking place on February 19 – 21. This is a single-elimination tournament, meaning that when you lose a series, you’re out of the competition.
