The Pool Play stage of the $325,000 pro tournament at CWL London has come to an end, which means that the Winners and Losers Brackets have been set for the knockout stages.
Just as with the previous CWL event at Fort Worth, the competitive structure at CWL London sees the pro tournament completely separated from the amateur Open Bracket tournament.
This has allowed all four teams within each of the four pools to finish all of their matches on Friday, May 3, meaning that the Championship Bracket begins first thing on Saturday, May 4.
The top two teams from each pool have been placed in the Winners Bracket, while the bottom two teams face elimination straight away in the first round of the Losers Bracket.
With the knockout stages set to begin, here are the Winners and Losers Bracket of CWL London, which will be updated live after each round of play.

As is almost always the case, the Pool Play of the pro tournament at CWL London provided some surprising outcomes, which has led the Winners and Losers Brackets to look at lot different from what many would have predicted.
Arguably the biggest shock was the fact that the defending CWL Fort Worth champions Luminosity Gaming went 0-3 to finish in the bottom of B, which means they’ll have to start their knockout journey in the Losers Bracket.
With each team’s placement within their respective pool determining their position in the Championship Bracket, there are some very intriguing matchups set to take place in both both brackets.
In the Winners side of things, FaZe Clan will mark their return to pro status with a trial by fire against the red hot OpTic Gaming, while eUnited and 100 Thieves will do battle on the flip side.
In the Losers Bracket, Envy’s matchup against Enigma6 Group should be a very interesting watch, and it’ll definitely be worth keeping an eye on how LG will fare with their backs against the wall.
