Format and Rules

Red Bull's "Home Ground" ruleset is intended to make each match even less predictable.

Every match is a best of five, with each team selecting a "Home Ground" map.

Home Grounds are played first, and if a team wins both Home Grounds then they progress – instantly winning the best of five.

Where Can You Watch?

The event will be streamed on Twitch.tv/RedBull, with broadcast talent including Frankie Ward as event host, CS:GO veteran Lauren "Pansy" Scott and Mike "hypoc" Robins commentating and analysing.
