Regional Major Rankings: Rio Major 2020 - South America
The Regional Major Rankings is the point-based qualification system that was implemented to determine the invites for Rio Major to replace the Minors and the old invite system. Teams earn points towards the RMR through various competitions that will be held in the months leading up to the Major. There will be two RMR Series for South America: one in the Spring and one in the Fall.
