The league returns to the SMX Convention Center for its playoffs after holding the Season 9 knockout stage there. Located within the vicinity of SM Mall of Asia, SMX is the biggest private venue in the Philippines for trade events, industry conventions, corporate functions, and international exhibitions.

Early bird passes will be available next week, while further ticket details will be announced soon.

World champion teams Bren Esports and ECHO are the only squads that have secured a playoff spot at the time of writing.
