As well as in other seasons of the championship, the last two participants of the top division will be determined in the qualifiers, in which 16 teams from Europe will take part. The teams have been divided into 4 groups with 4 teams in each to face against each other in the Round-Robin system (everyone plays against everyone).
According to the result of the group stage, the two best teams from each group will reach the next stage, which will run in a double-elimination system with a best-of-three format. In this tough fight they will have to figure out who deserves two sacred slots in the top division of the tournament.

|HellRaisers||Team Property||Publiclir.se||LDLC White|
|ESC Gaming||Lions.mix||PiTER||Mortal Kombat|
|Orbit||Flipsid3 Tactics||Team Kinguin||SK Gaming|
The group stage matches will run from July 20-21, 22-28, 29-30, and the play-off stage is planned for August 2-11. In addition to this, the organizers have announced that the LAN finals of CEVO Season 8 will take place in the MLG.tv arena, Columbus, Ohio from November 6-8.
