Nerd Street Gamers announced their Winter Championships for 2022 and now the EMEA scene will get their chance for glory outside of the VCT. Another Red Bull Home Ground is taking place in November.

Out of those 16 teams, fifteen have been announced with the final spot available through an online open qualifier happening October 18, 2021 to October 21, 2021.
