Description
Welcome to four brand new qualifications rounds for the Splatoon 2 European Championship 2019/2020 - Nordics

Freezing Squids League is proud to announce that we will be creating the four official Nordic qualification tournaments for the Splatoon 2 European Championship this year. The qualification tournaments is sponsored officially by Nintendo of Europe GmbH & Bergsala AB.

EU Championship - Nordic Qualification #1
Date: 29/9-2019
Start time: 13:00 CEST

We welcome Splatoon 2 teams and players of all levels! If you've already got a team that's perfect. If not, we will make a channel in our Discord channel, where you can look for other players to form a team with. We will also be making a few community nights, where everybody can participate and hopefully find new friends to play with.

We will use the Toornament system like last year, so a lot of you will already be familiar with the system. If you're new, then join our Discord channel and ask all the questions you have, and we will do our best to answer them.

To participate in the Nordic qualification tournaments, you must have a team of 4 people. Only a full team of at least 4 players will be accepted in the tournament, but you can have up to 5 players in your team roster.

You will have to sign your team up through both Toornament and the team captain also have to join our Discord channel here:

Be sure to have your team ready before signing up through Toornament.
