Six Invitational 2022: format & schedule

The Six Invitational 2022 will kick off on February 8, 2022 and run for nearly two weeks, all the way through to February 20’s grand final.

The exact format of the Six Invitational is yet to be confirmed. However, with 20 teams expected ⁠— like last year’s edition before Wildcard and Virtus.pro were forced to abandon ⁠— it’s likely teams will be split into two groups of 10, with the top 16 teams making it out to the playoffs.
