The first Rainbow Six Siege Six Major of the year begins on Monday, April 24, as 24 teams convene in Copenhagen, Denmark, for what should be a thrilling few weeks of action.
As well as having a record number of teams, the Copenhagen Major will also be the first Rainbow Six Siege event run by the tournament organizer BLAST, the longest tournament to date with 12 days of play, and will have the largest prize pool of any Six Major at $750,000.

Rainbow Six Siege Six Copenhagen Major
Major tournaments have been expanded upon for 2023, with 24 teams invited compared to the previous number of 16. This has led to the first significant format change in the tournament’s history, with an initial play-in stage occurring before the main event.
From Monday, April 24 to Thursday, April 27, 16 lower-seeded teams will compete across four double-elimination brackets. The top two in each group will progress to the playoffs, where they will meet the top-eight teams who skipped this tournament’s first phase.
The remaining 16 will play in a five-day Swiss tournament from Saturday, April 29 to Wednesday, May 3. Here, teams will be matched against opponents with the same win rate as their own, with the top eight advancing to the Finals stage.
Finally, a single-elimination bracket will determine the champions from Friday, May 5 to Sunday, May 7. This will take place in front of a live audience in Copenhagen.
