Note that the registration period will only be up until March 29, 2017, at 23:59 GMT+8, which means that interested SEA teams will only have roughly a day as of this article’s writing to try and be part of the tournament. The playdates will be this coming April 1, 2017, for the WildCard Qualifiers #1, and April 9, 2017, for WildCard Qualifiers #2, once the other 2 teams are determined the group stages, together with the automatically seeded 8 teams, which are the top 8 squads based on current rankings, will commence this April 15 – 16, 2017, and the top 6 playoffs to run on April 22 – 23, 2017.
