The Overwatch World Cup teams are 36 in number, broken down roughly by geographic region and the level of Overwatch participation in that country or region, which explains why some countries sadly didn’t compete. The 36 countries are:
Canada Costa Rica Guatemala Mexico Puerto Rico The United States Argentina Brazil Chile Columbia Ecuador Peru Belgium France Great Britain Italy The Netherlands Spain Germany Norway Poland Saudi Arabia Sweden Turkey Chinese Taipei Hong Kong Indonesia Japan The Phillipines South Korea Australia India Malaysia New Zealand Singapore Thailand
China also participates in the Overwatch World Cup but is automatically seeded into the group stage, meaning the other 36 countries will have to fight for 15 spots in the qualifiers.
