Teams will be battling it out in a two-sided double-elimination style bracket. Each matchup will be a best-of-5 series, meaning that the first team to three wins moves on. With this innovative format, each match will count and create pure excitement from the first minute. Teams will compete in the double-elimination bracket in the first four days with the final days featuring the best four teams, where losing a match will end the tournament run of the respective team.
The best eight teams from the eligible regions earned their spots at the FIFAe Continental Cup 2023 based on their FO4 Series Ranking Points and the remaining eight slots were given to the two best teams from each region.
After the South Korean team MIN CHO DAN won the inaugural competition in 2021, the Vietnamese Team PRO GAMER lifted the trophy last year and have the chance to defend their title at the third edition of the event this September.
