Supercell and ESL are making some changes to the Brawl Stars Championship 2020 with the game’s release in China. The region will now be competing in the championship and will have one slot for the Brawl Stars World Finals 2020, the companies announced today.

To make space for China in the Championship, the Korean region is being merged with the Asia-Pacific and Japan region. This collective region will be called the Asia Pacific (APAC) region and will offer two slots for the World Finals. This change will be implemented starting with the June 20 to 21 online qualifier.
