As teams are currently battling it out in Stage 3, we are excited to announce that the next Six Major will take place in Gävle, Sweden. As we announced early 2020, our initial plan was to host this Six Major in Asia, however, due to the ongoing pandemic, we had to switch locations to take into account travel restrictions and local regulations. While we cannot wait to bring international events back to the Asia-Pacific region, we are thrilled to have a Six Major in Sweden for the very first time in Rainbow Six Esports history!

Following the same competitive format as the recent Six Mexico Major, the Six Sweden Major Group Stage will take place from November 8 to 10, moving on to the Playoffs from November 12 to 14. In this final showdown, teams will compete for the title, prize money and a last chance at earning points in the Global Standings to qualify for the Six Invitational 2022.

With the well-being of pro players, staff, and partners being our main priority, the Six Sweden Major will be a LAN event with no on-site audience following strict sanitary measures. We are currently working on the sanitary protocol for the event, following guidelines from health organizations and local authorities, and monitoring the current situation to ensure all appropriate actions are taken.

To celebrate the Six Major, a new operator bundle is now available for purchase in-game. While the design reflects our initial plans to hold the event in Asia and not the new location, we hope you enjoy it. 30% of the net revenue from these items will contribute to the prize pool of the competition, up to a cap of USD $500,000, offering you a chance to support the teams taking part in the Six Sweden Major!
