FACEIT Major New Challengers stage third round drawn
FACEIT have drawn the third-round matchups of the New Challengers stage, which will see two teams advance to the next stage and two teams get eliminated.
Even though the Buchholz seeding system is used from the third round on at the FACEIT Major, there was too little disparity between the teams' Buchholz scores (a sum of their opponents' scores).

The third round will see the winners of the 2-0 pool advance to the New Legends stage, while the two teams who lose the 0-2 matches will get eliminated.
The matchups are the following:
