Just as for the Six Mexico Major, all 16 teams will be divided into 4 groups of 4.
The 4 teams from each region were seeded based on their final rankings in their respective regional leagues and playoffs. Each group was then created to have one representative from each region with only one seed per group. Here is the breakdown of the groups for the Six Sweden Major:
During the Group Stage, teams will compete in a Best-of-1 double round robin format, where each team will play all the other teams in their group twice. The point attribution system is as follows:
- A win is worth 3 points.
- An overtime win is worth 2 points.
- An overtime loss is worth 1 point.
- A loss is worth 0 points.
At the end of the Group Stage, the 2 teams with the most points in each group will advance to the Playoffs.
Playoffs & Grand Final
The first round of the Playoffs and the Semifinals will be Best-of-3, single elimination, with the winner advancing and the loser eliminated from the competition.
The Grand Final will take place on November 14 and will be a Best-of-5 match to decide the winner of the Six Sweden Major!

With the health and well-being of our pro players, staff, partners, and fans as our top priority, the event will be held under strict sanitary measures for all participants. Additionally, we have taken the decision to hold the Six Sweden Major without any on-site audience. We have been working with our partner ESL and the safety and security agency Restrata to develop a controlled, safe, and competitive offline environment in line with health organizations and local authorities’ guidelines. Below are the different actions that will be taken to ensure everyone’s safety.
Please note health and safety measures may be updated up until the event, based on the evolution of the situation and local authorities' guidelines.Before the event:

A 3-day quarantine period at the hotel will be observed by all unvaccinated or partially vaccinated players upon arrival.
*Only people having completed the full vaccination process with a vaccine listed on the World Health Organization’s website will be considered vaccinated.
- For all participants
All participants have been asked to remain on the premises of their hotel and the venue for the entire duration of the event. They will transit between the venue and their hotel through dedicated shuttles. All necessary amenities will be at the disposal of the participants to ensure a positive experience at the hotel and venue.Players Guidelines:
- All players will have individual hotel rooms.
- All teams will have their own practice room.
- All teams are asked to avoid visiting other teams’ practice area or hotel rooms.

While we are taking all necessary steps to keep all attendees safe, we are still planning for unexpected circumstances.
- If a player tests positive for COVID-19 before travelling to Sweden, the designated substitute present at the event can replace the player for the competition.
- If 2 or more players test positive before travelling to Sweden, the full team will be removed from the competition.
- If the coach tests positive before the event, they won’t be replaced during the event.
Participating teams will face competitive sanctions, up to dismissal from the site and disqualification entirely from the competition, should they fail to comply with the safety instructions at any moment during the event.
Once in Sweden, if a player tests positive after any of the required PCR tests:
- The player will be placed in isolation and all necessary follow-up measures will be taken to ensure the safety of all participants and staff.
- If the team and the impacted player desire to proceed with the competition, we will do our best to accommodate remote play, in isolation in the hotel rooms.
- The team will be provided the necessary support to ensure they are repatriated in optimal safety conditions for them and the general public
