Northern Arena group draw
The draw for the group stage of Northern Arena has been made, with the 16 competing sides having been placed into four groups.
From September 1-4, the Metro Toronto Convention will stage the first of two Northern Arena events that will take place until the end of the year, each one featuring an international Counter-Strike tournament with $100,000 on offer.
The competition will kick off with a double-elimination group stage, featuring a best-of-three format in the losers' and the decider matches, followed by the single-elimination, best-of-three playoffs with the remaining eight sides.
