In a blog post Riot: “Our goal is to see our biggest international events in front of a live audience, and both cities have shown clear ways to this goal and at the same time gave the best possible guarantee that all qualified teams can take part and compete.”
Funplus Phoenix had qualified for the Masters 1 in Iceland over the Challengers event of the EMEA region, but could not take part in the event due to various travel restrictions. Team Liquid replaced the team instead. Riot clearly identified Denmark and Turkey as two countries in which all players can participate in any event.
