Flashpoint will start its sophomore season on Tuesday 10th November, concluding with the finals on 6th December. 

This season also boasts the biggest prize pool of any CS:GO event this year, with a huge $1 million up for grabs. 


What is the format?

The league starts with a Group stage where 12 teams will compete across three different groups in best-of-three matches. 

The top two teams from each group will advance to the Playoffs, while the third and fourth placed teams will move into a Last Chance Stage - a single elimination bracket where the top two teams will earn the remaining two spots in Playoffs. 

The Playoffs will then kick off with a double-elimination bracket for eight teams in best-of-three matches.
