The American Hybrid World Cup Qualifier was an 8-group (16 players in each) knockout tournament taking place from May 22-29. The winner of each group qualified for the 2021 FIDE World Cup that will be held in Sochi, Russia from July 10 to August 7. All the games were played online on Tornelo platform from designated venues.

All the matches consisted of two classical games (120 min + 30 sec) and tiebreakers (2 games, 10min + 3sec) when needed.  In case of an even score after a tiebreaker, an Armageddon blitz-game was played.
