UKIN Rainbow Rumble will begin on Saturday, 30th October, with two qualifying tournaments spread over two weeks. The top four teams of each qualifier tournament will earn their place in the group stage, which begins in November. The group stage will see the qualifying teams mixed into four-team groups with those that placed fifth to eighth in the UKIN Premiere Summer ‘21 tournament. The four groups will then battle it out over four days, with the top two teams from each group making it into the knockout stage.

The knockout stage will begin in January, and sees the top four teams from the UKIN Premiere Summer ‘21 teams automatically seeded into the second round. This stage will feature 12 teams in a double-elimination bracket, with the winning team taking home a special community-collaborated trophy and prize money.

The Rainbow Six UK Twitch Channel will broadcast the event, starting with the group stage. Will you be tuning in to watch the action? Let us know in the comments!
