About[edit]

The Six Major is a professional Rainbow Six Siege tournament hosted by Ubisoft, the game's developer and publisher. Located in various venues around the world, the tournament gathers the best teams from Regional Leagues and serves as an interregional final for each Regional League stage.

Format[edit]

The first edition of the Six Major had sixteen teams playing an annual event organized by ESL in conjunction with Ubisoft. All teams are separated in four groups of four. Eight of the teams qualify by placing top two in their region's Pro League Four teams qualify by placing first in their region's respective Major Qualifier. Two teams qualify by winning a Minor. One team qualifies by winning the previous Six Invitational. The final slot is allocated by Ubisoft. During the groups stage, the standard GSL format is used (1st seed vs 4th seed, 2nd seed vs 3rd seed, winners vs losers). Once the eight remaining teams are known, they are placed in a single elimination bracket. Every single match is in Bo3 outside of the Grand Final, which is played in Bo5.

The second and current edition of the Six Major has sixteen teams playing an event every three months organized by Ubisoft, with the exception of February when the Six Invitational takes place. All teams are separated in four groups of four. Twelve teams qualify by making top three in their respective regional league. Four more teams qualify by placing first in their region's respective Major Qualifier. During the groups stage, the standard GSL format is used (1st seed vs 4th seed, 2nd seed vs 3rd seed, winners vs losers). Once the eight remaining teams are known, they are placed in a single elimination bracket. Every single match is in Bo3 outside of the Grand Final, which is played in Bo5.
