The competition begins with the group stage where four teams are split into four groups. Each group will follow a round-robin format, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the playoffs. All group stage matches are best-of-one.

Red Bull Home Ground’s unique format sets in during the playoffs, with the final eight teams competing in a single-elimination bracket. Each team will get to pick their strongest map as their ‘home ground’, which will always be the first map played in the best-of-five. If a team wins both home ground maps, they instantly win the best-of-five.
