The one-day knockout tournament takes place on Wednesday, 26 January with the First Round matches (Round of 64) to be played between 10am – 12pm. Players must complete their first match within this timeframe in order to progress to the next round.
Players can find their opening round opponent through the Battlefy platform, under the “Brackets” tab. Once the tournament begins at 10:00am on Wednesday, players will then be able to communicate through the Match Centre in Battlefy to set up the match within the round window. This is done by clicking on the “Play Now” button on the right side of the page.



Players are required to check in before each round’s match and should only do so after the round start time. There is a maximum check-in period of 30 minutes for players to contact each other and set up their match. If a player does not check in before the 30-minute timer, they will be removed from the competition.

The first round has a two-hour window to ensure all games are played. From the Round of 32 onwards, each match must be played and the result submitted within the one-hour round window.
