Game Changers EMEA & EMEA Contenders

Stage 1 of VCT Game Changers EMEA will witness the participation of eight qualified teams alongside two invited teams – BBL Queens and G2 Gozen.

The switch to a 10-team structure increases competition while shining a greater spotlight on the individuals and their experiences. The stakes are enormous, with the bottom two teams demoted to Contenders, where 30 other teams await advancement.
