The DCL Draft Selection 2021

COMING SOON: the DCL World Championship and DCL Women’s Cup* 2021 Draft Selection!
This is your chance to join the top teams from around the world and have a shot at being the world champion.

First things first, you need to be on DCL – The Game. The simulator is available on Steam, PS4, and Xbox. The entire Draft process will take place in-game.

Here’s how the 2021 Draft Selection is gonna go down: 

  • The Draft Qualification will take place in DCL – The Game over a period of 3 weeks starting on Monday the 19th of April 2021 at 12noon UTC until Friday the 14th of May at 12noon UTC.
  • Thereafter, the top players (based on times recorded) on each platform (200 Steam, 50 Xbox, 50 PS4) will be issued an online form (via email) to complete. This form will guide the team owners with their player evaluation. They are looking for pilots who are fast and reliable on any racetrack, but also in search of those who have good technical knowledge, a grasp of English and are comfortable in front of the camera. The form is also a “get to know you” opportunity where you can show your personality and experience/achievements outside of DCL.
  • On Saturday the 22nd of May starting 12noon UTC, a 24-hour window opens where each of the qualified pilots will have the chance to set their fastest time possible, on a new track in DCL – The Game. The password to this track will be sent to the email from the form submitted so check your inbox. You will NOT be sent the password to join the track if you haven’t filled out the form.
  • Team owners will contact pilots directly through the contact details shared on the form. Picks will be announced by the team owners to DCL on Wednesday the 26th of May 2021. Teams will have turns one by one to announce one pick, starting with the team that finished last in the Championship of 2020, followed by the team in 6th, etc, and ending in the team that won first. This process will continue until all teams have finished all their picks.
  • Each team is allowed 3 or more picks for the DCL World Championship and up to 2 picks for the DCL Women’s Cup*.
  • Teams are allowed to trade pilots after the picks are announced.
  • An official announcement revealing all the picks to the general public on all relevant channels will follow on Monday the 31st of May 2021.


IMPORTANT: PLEASE CHECK YOUR INBOX ONCE THE QUALIFICATION PHASE IS OVER! You cannot take part in the selection if you haven’t replied to the email from the DCL Team.
