There will be two international tournaments for the Mondial des Jeux Loto Québec and Just For Laughs Festival. The first tournament will be focused towards the best CS:GO teams in the world. These teams will be chosen through a number of qualifying tournaments and team applications. The second tournament is reserved for strictly women only teams.
