The Brazilian team FURIA will perform at Six Charlotte Major 2022 from Mexico City due to problems with obtaining visas to the United States. At the same time, there are fears that a similar fate will overtake other teams from Brazil.
The day before, Jaime Padua, FURIA CEO and Twister roster coach, announced the team's inability to attend the Six Charlotte Major 2022 in person after being denied US visas. Instead, FURIA will compete from Mexico City, as tickets to Mexico have already been bought.
It is currently unclear if three other Brazilian teams will face the same problem as FURIA. However, there is a possibility that they will not be able to get permission to enter the United States in time.
Previously, GorgoNa, representing the colors of Heroic, had similar visa problems. Although the Bulgarian esportsman eventually completed all the necessary paperwork, he noted that Ubisoft has a back-up plan in case someone fails to make it to the Six Charlotte Major 2022 venue.
