The finals were held online from 8 to 10 July. The teams in each group played each other in a dual tournament bracket format (double elimination without the grand final). Each group stage fixture was composed of two matches and the top two teams in each group progressed to an eight-team single elimination bracket.

For the elimination bracket, the four group winners were drawn against a runner-up team from another group. Each match until the final was a best-of-three series. The final was best of five. All matches were 1-vs-1.
