With the ELEAGUE Premier 2017 playoffs drawing near, we have prepared a viewer’s guide that includes the bracket, prize distribution and broadcast talent.
The ELEAGUE Premier 2017 playoffs will take place from October 10-14 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and will feature the eight teams who managed to book playoff spots by finishing in the top two places in the groups. The bulk of the tournament's $1 Million prize pool will be on the line, with the champions taking home $500,000.
The teams who finished first in their group will take on a second placed-team from a different group in the quarter-finals. The single-elimination, best-of-three bracket ensures that teams from the same group will not be able to play each other until the grand final.
Below is the playoff bracket:
The first two days will feature the quarter-final, matches, while the third day will feature the two semi-finals. The grand final will be played a day later.
