We are pleased to announce the qualifying process for the €15,000 Winter 2015 Season of the ESL Nordic Nationals for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Kicking off next week will be the first period of country qualifiers, open to teams of all skill levels with a majority roster from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden.
The winter season will feature four open qualifier cups each for Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. There will not be any country qualifiers for Iceland, however, Icelandic teams can still sign up for the open qualifiers for one of the other countries.
The cups will have a maximum capacity of 128 teams and will run over the course of two days. An unlimited number of sign-ups are open, but the check-in process will run on a first come first serve basis, meaning the first 128 teams to check-in on the day will get a slot in the competition.
The six-week long qualification stage is split into two separate periods of three weeks, each containing two country qualifiers as well as the country group stages. Teams that place within top four of a tournament during the first qualifying period will advance to the first group stage, whereas teams that participate during the second qualifying period advance to the second group stage.
