Prior to the tournament, 24 teams were split into three categories β€” Contenders, Challengers, and Legends β€” based on their seeding in the RMR (Regional Major Rankings) Qualifiers. The teams would have to compete in three separate stages to offer the world the tournament's winners.

With the conclusion of the Challengers Stage, eight qualifying teams from among the Challengers and Contenders have progressed to the Legends Stage to compete with the eight remaining teams. From the Legend's Stage, teams will have the opportunity to enter the Champions Stage held at the Antwerps Sportpaleis (Antwerp's Sport Palace) and fight for a glorious prize pool of $1 million.
