But there’s still a bit more to share, namely about the official rulebook and some FAQs you may be wondering about.
For more details about any specific topic that we have discussed this week, please read through the posts linked above, check out the How to Compete page on the Clash of Clans Esports website, OR find answers to many of your burning questions right here in the official Clash of Clans World Championship Rulebook!

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started?
Getting started is easy!
Any player who is Town Hall 14 is eligible to participate, pending they meet our eligibility requirements.
- In order to participate, the Clan Leader must enroll their clan into the tournament through the in-app Tournament Hub.
- Once the leader registers their team, they will select the 5 players in the Clan who will represent the clan in Clash of Clans World Championship.
- Selected players will be able to register through the in-app Tournament Hub.
- After all 5 players have completed registration, the leader must finalize their team lineup by locking their team.
What is the Tournament Hub?
The Tournament Hub is an in-app competition platform where players can register and compete in the competition, as well as view critical tournament information and leaderboards.
The Tournament Hub will be available in Clash of Clans on 3 August.
Am I eligible to compete in the tournament?
You are eligible to compete if you meet these requirements:
- Be at least 16 years of age
- Town Hall 14
- Your account is in good standing
How do I play the match and report the match result?
When a match is created, a War will automatically be initiated between the 2 clans. After the War is completed, the results of the War will automatically be recorded.
If your team experiences any issues during your match, please contact Tournament Administrators through Discord.
What information should I be aware of before playing a match?
All members of the team must be online and a part of the Clan their team is affiliated with before their match begins. In addition, players may not be a part of an active Clan or Friendly War that overlaps the tournament match War.
If any player is a part of an active Clan or Friendly War, or is not a part of the Clan when the Tournament match is scheduled to begin, their team will automatically be given the loss for the match.
Additionally, for all Tournament matches after the Ladder stage, only the 5 players that are a part of the team can be a part of the Clan. All other clanmates must leave the clan, and can return after the competition for the day has concluded. This is done to ensure tournament integrity.
As general reminders, please keep these points in mind during ladder play:
- Remember to change to the correct layout during preparation time
- Only 1 attack per player is allowed per War
- Change your clan settings to 'invite only' to protect your own clan.
- For the ladder stage, you're allowed to play in 6 Wars per day
What measures are taken to ensure fair play?
Throughout the competition, Tournament Administrators will be working to support teams and ensure that the official Clash of Clans World Championship rules are upheld. In addition, players must abide by the Supercell Terms of Service and Fair Play rules.
There will be an ongoing review of accounts throughout the competition.
How do I advance and qualify for the World Championship Finals?
During Championship Qualifiers, teams advance to the next stage by placing high enough in the current stage of competition.
For example, the top 64 teams during the Stage 1 Ladder will advance to the Stage 2 Double Elimination stage of the competition.
After all 4 stages are completed, 4 teams will be awarded a Golden Ticket, qualifying them for the World Championship Finals!
Additionally, 4 teams will earn Golden Tickets through specific community-organized tournaments.
If I win, how do I travel to the World Championship Finals ?
All qualifying teams must be physically present at World Finals in order to compete.
