The complete list of participants for the Six Invitational has been revealed. The event will take place in São Paulo during February next year. With the introduction of BLAST as the organizer of this season's circuit, the circuit's biggest tournament also underwent some changes, namely surrounding the qualification method for the competition.
For SI2024, the end/beginning of the year qualifiers which gave one last place to some regions that were abolished. Instead, all qualified teams will enter the competition on the merits of performances in international events and regional leagues, earning points dependent on their results in these competitions. Naturally, presence at and better performances in international events can add more points for the team.
The last places in the SI were hectic — several teams present at the Atlanta Major were forced to reach a certain stage of the competition to qualify for the SI.
That said, check out the teams that will be in São Paulo in February to compete in the Six Invitational:
- W7m esports – Brazil League
- FaZe Clan – Brazil League
- Soniqs – North America League

- Virtus.pro – Europe League
- G2 Esports – Europe League

Making São Paulo is a highlight in LOS's journey, with the team needing to reach at least the semi-finals of the Atlanta Major to guarantee enough points to qualify for the Six Invitational. The Brazilian team, coming from the LCQ, played the first and second phase of the Major, reaching the much-desired semifinal.
A similar path was needed for BDS to dream of the Six Invitational, but the French team were unable to overcome G2 in the semifinals. As a result, São Paulo won’t have talents like Stéphane "Shaiiko" Lebleu and Théo "LikEfac" Mariano competing in the Six Invitational.
