Updated ECL Lite Qualifiers

For the ECL '23 Season, ECL Lite Qualifiers will be expanded, whereas Core teams will no longer have spots in the ECL Pro Qualifiers from the ECL '23 Pro Spring Qualifiers onwards. These changes will better ensure that all teams will be playing at their correct level in the future. Here's the gist of the changes we'll be making:

Expansion of ECL Lite Qualifiers
The Expansion of the ECL '23 Lite Qualifiers will come into effect immediately. Here, we'll be increasing the Qualifier size to a total of 64 teams, consisting of 15 Lite teams, 28 Core teams and 4 Neo teams from the previous season. The remaining 17 spots in the qualifiers will be filled by Wildcard teams, and these Wildcard spots will be open for application to every team without restrictions. Wildcard spots will be filled in order of registration. In the case of eligible teams not signing up, the amount of Wildcard spots will automatically increase. Read more about Wildcards here.
 

The following teams are have secured their spot to register to the Lite Qualifiers:

What if all Qualifier positions are not filled?

  • Teams will not be promoted straight and all open spots will be filled through qualifiers (excluding automatically relegated/promoted teams). If there happens to be more open spots than anticipated (e.g. from teams disbanding which would have been invited to play in the qualifier) spots are filled as follows:
    • Pro Qualifiers
      • Pro relegated teams
      • Lite #10-16
      • Wildcard teams #5-8
      • Lite #17-32
      • Core #5-8 

Special rules for Qualifier teams

  • To prevent teams from taking advantage, specifically recruiting players to bolster your chances in the qualifier that have no intention of remaining in the team beyond that, we have decided to enforce a soft roster lock post qualifier play.
    • If a former Elite player wants to participate in a qualifier for a Wildcard, Pro or Lite team, then they will be locked into that division at where the team ends up throughout the season
      • Transfer to a lower division is possible
    • If a former Pro player wants to participate in a qualifier for a wildcard, Pro or Lite team, then they will be locked into that division at where the team ends up for 2 weeks (starting from the first game played in Pro that season)
      • Transfer to a lower division is possible
  • Lite & Pro Qualifiers are part of the season so it is good to remember that only one transfer is allowed during the season
