CIS Minor group draw
Starladder has revealed the draw for the group stage of the CIS Minor.
Taking place at the GamerStadium, in Moscow, from June 8-11, the CIS Minor will kick off with eight teams, all determined by a closed qualifier, split into two double-elimination groups.
Both groups have two high seeds, which were given to the group winners of the closed qualifier, as well as two low seeds, which are held by the second-placed sides from the previous stage.
In order to be able to comply with the tournament rules regarding academy teams, Spirit Academy will rebrand to TS.Academy for this competition, in which they will also play under a different logo.
The CIS Minor will reward the top two teams with spots at the offline qualifier for the Major, from June 29 to July 2. A total of $50,000 will also be on offer at the Russian event, with the winner taking home $30,000.
