Initially Qualified Teams

There were two waves of qualified teams - the first, teams that participated in Challenger Playoffs and/or the Spring Promotion Tournament. After four of these teams dropped out of the Expansion Tournament, the top twelve ranked 5's teams were invited; however, not all of these teams participated either. To see a list of teams that participated, see below.
