The Six Major is back again, and this time it’s heading to Sweden for the third and final event of the year. Set to take place in Gävle, the Six Sweden Major will see 16 teams from across the world compete for $500,000, as well as some sweet Six Invitational points for the 2022 season.
Similar to the Six Mexico Major held in August, the Sweden Major will consist of the same format. Group Stage will take place from November 8 to 10, which then move on to the Playoffs from November 12 to 14.
The Major will also see no on-site audience, with strict sanitary rules also in place to keep all participants and staff safe.
As usual, all the matches will be likely streamed on the Rainbow Six Twitch channel. The schedule is yet to be released, but it’s likely that groups will be running simultaneously – like what we saw during the previous majors.
Be sure to keep an eye on the Bravo channel for games that won’t be broadcasted on the main channel. You can watch both streams below.

The November Major will follow the same format as the Six Mexico major that we saw in August.
The Group Stage from November 8 to 10 will consist of four groups of four teams battling it out in a double round-robin, best-of-one format.
We’ll then see the top two teams from each group progress to the Playoffs, where they’ll be faced with a best-of-three single-elimination bracket, with a best-of-five grand final.
