In our region, this will be known as the VCT Américas Kickoff and will feature a previously unseen format with 11 teams.

VCT Américas Kickoff Format

This tournament will consist of a total of 11 participants and will feature three stages:

1. Group Stage

The Group Stage will be divided into two zones of 4 teams and one zone of 3 teams. Notably, Evil Geniuses will be in the 3-team zone due to their region’s highest position in the 2023 Champions.

2. Play-Ins

The second-place teams from each group will compete in a round-robin format for a spot in the Playoffs.

3. Playoffs

The top team from each group and the winner of the Play-Ins will proceed to a single-elimination bracket. The finalists of the Kickoff will directly qualify for the Masters in Madrid, with the champion receiving a preferred spot.
