Americas Minor viewer's guide
The Americas Minor will start tomorrow, with eight teams from the South and North American regions fighting for a share of the $50,000 prize pool as well as for two spots of the PGL Major Krakows Main Qualifier.
The clash between the teams from the two continents will take place in the Esports Arena in Santa Ana, California, where 1,000 visitors can watch live from the venue on June 8-11.
As seen before in the other Minor tournaments, the eight attending teams will be separated into two groups which consist of four teams each. On the first two days, the teams will play to determine who will advance from the group stage. The opening and winners' matches will be best-of-one, while the group elimination, the deciders, and the playoffs will be played out as best-of-threes.
