How does the eChampions League work?

The eChampions League 2024 will take place over three stages – Group stage, Knockout stage and Finals.

Group stage (11–12 May: 17:00 CET)

In the Group stage, the qualified players will be split into eight groups. They will face off in a round-robin format over two days. The top three teams from each group will advance to the Knockout stage.

Knockout stage (18–19 May: 19:00 CET)

The Knockout stage will see the field reduced from 24 players to just eight as they compete in a single elimination format. The second and third seeds will go head to head in the Knockout stage play-offs, then will compete against a top-seeded team in the round of 16. Winners from those games will then compete in the eChampions League Finals.

Finals (29 May: 17:00 CET)

The final eight finalists will compete in front of a live audience at the Magazine London in a single elimination competition, with one being crowned the new eChampions League champion.
