Format and Tournament Dates
The DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: Europe will stretch just over four weeks with a group stage and then playoffs to wrap up the tourney with the best-of-five finale on June 14. All matchups and playoffs will be broadcast with DreamHack’s Twitch channel.
This will be played concurrently with the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America tournament with Team Liquid favored to win that tourney.
The 16 teams are broken up into four groups of four and each team will play its other group members once over a three-day period to determine a group winner.
Each match during the group stage is a best-of-three with the group winner moving on to the Upper Bracket while the second- and third-place teams move into the Lower Bracket. Teams moved to the Lower Bracket have to get through an additional three series to make it to the grand finale.
Here are each of the groups for the tourney with schedules and playoff:
