The sixth edition of the FSL Open will be one of the last chances for Southeast Asia’s all-female squads to establish themselves as the top dogs and qualify for the US$25,000 VCT Game Changers SEA: FSL Elite, which will take place in October.
The VCT Game Changers SEA: FSL Open VI Playoffs headlined by Alter Ego Celeste, the defending champions of six of previous FSL Open, and will take place on August 25-29 with US$5,000 on the line.
