Intel® Extreme Masters Sydney 2019 open and closed qualifier dates announced

The road to the Qudos Bank Arena begins with the open and closed qualifiers for IEM Sydney 2019. Here are all the important dates aspiring teams need to consider if they wish to join the elite in Australia next May.

Due to an internal error, we initially announced that IEM Sydney 2019 would consist of eight invited teams and eight qualifiers (three of them from Oceania). We apologize for any inconveniences caused by this and would like to rectify Oceania's allotment to two spots, one of them from the online qualifier. We will soon announce some very exciting details relating to Oceania's second qualifier spot.

This is how each regional qualifier will play out:
