The European League is the highest level of competitive Rainbow Six Siege in Europe. The league will run in parallel with NA, LATAM, and APAC. The season is broken down into 3 round-robin stages, but due to the format change happening in the middle of the year, stage 3 won't be played this season. Once a stage ends, the top four teams will qualify for the Six Major, where they will face top teams from the other regions. After each stage, the league points are reset. At the end of the 2 stages, these points are combined to form the final rankings of the whole season. The top four teams from the region will then compete in the European League finals to determine the regional champion.
