During the season, Team Spirit and Team Seaside have shown a high level during qualifying competitions, explained  the Swedish Figure Skating Federation in a press release on Friday.

"Neither team has been able to compete internationally due to the pandemic, so it will be particularly exciting to see how they fare in international competition," said Anna Burwall, sports director.

The scores between the two teams have been tight this season. Team Seaside won both qualifying events with a best personal score of 150.61. Team Spirit finished 2nd in both qualifiers with a top score of 146.63.
