Here is the bracket for the EMEA VCT Stage 3: Challengers playoffs

After months of intense competition, the top 12 VALORANT teams in Europe, Turkey, and the CIS have been decided. 

The EMEA VCT Stage Three: Challengers playoffs will determine which four teams make it to Masters Berlin in September. Over $100,000 in prize money and, most importantly, circuit points also will be on the line. 

From Aug. 12 to 22, teams will compete in a double-elimination bracket. Every match will be played in a best-of-three, except the grand finals, which will be a best-of-five.
