The ESL One Stockholm Major 2022 playoffs kick off on May 16, with the 12 qualified teams from the group stage taking center stage at the Hovet Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
After three days of intense group stage action, Tundra Esports, BetBoom, and T1 have already secured their upper bracket spots in Group A. Meanwhile, with two series left in Group B, there’s still a potential for a six-way tie between Team Liquid, Team Spirit, Fnatic, Gaimin Gladiators, Thunder Awaken, and TSM.
North American squad Evil Geniuses are also looking to stay in the competition by knocking down South American squad beastcoast to seventh place. If EG manages to win their final group stage match, they will face beastcoast again in a best-of-three tiebreaker to advance into the playoffs.
