They'll join compLexity Gaming, BIG, Natus Vincere, Team Liquid and Astralis for the tournament showdown.

The final stages of this year's competition will be held at Wembley Arena, London, where the top team will emerge victorious with a cool $500,000 in their back pocket.

There'll also be a special highlights programme broadcast on Sky Two at 11.30pm on the 23rd September.
