8 teams advance out of QR2 into the Main Qualifiers where 8 top European seeds await them. They are split into 4 primary seeds: Russia, France, Poland, Sweden, and 4 secondary seeds: Norway, Belgium, Germany and Netherlands. Unlike the previous rounds, the Main Qualifier start off with a GSL Group Stage of four groups with 4 teams in each. Two qualified teams join one primary and one secondary seed in each group and two best teams advance out of each group.
