Qualifications

For the North American contestant, a qualifying tournament will be set up by the MOF. The nations with the best rank will have a better place in the pots. For the others parts of the world, the highest ranking nations will be able to participate. In order to increase the rank of the contestants, the 2020 Occitanian Checkers League is organized before the tournament to coordinate numerous friendly matches.

The three European teams with the three best ranks will be qualified.
