Even before the start of the championship in London, the community was aware about the first eight squads that were to participate in the group stage. This list was made of the Legends of the previous Major, which is ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018.

Now they are joined by the winners of the qualifying stage — FACEIT Major 2018: The New Challengers Stage. Together they form a list of sixteen teams that, from 12 to 16 September, will be fighting for the spot in the top-8 and the invite to IEM Katowice, which will be guaranteed after reaching such a result.
