Everything you need to know about the PCS2 Europe Group Stage

What is PCS2 Europe? 

Let’s start with the basics! PCS2 Europe is a regional tournament where Europe’s finest rosters will go head-to-head, battling it out for the lion’s share of the $200,000 USD prize pot – and of course the right to call themselves champions! 

When is it? 

The Group Stage will take place across two weekends, from August 7-9 and August 14-16, with 6 matches each day starting from 18:00 CEST. 

After six days of action, the top 16 sides will progress to the PCS2 Europe Grand Finals, which will be held on the following three weekends:

  •  August 29 -30 
  •  September 5-6
  •  September 12-13

Who is playing who? 

The short answer is everyone is playing everyone – that is the beauty of it.
