Viewer's Guide: How the V4 Future Sports Festival is to be played

1
Only eight teams will make up a prize pool of 500,000 this weekend when the V4 Future Sports Festival is settled in Budapest, Hungary.
The two-day tournament, no matches played in the CS: GO tournament on Saturday, has a very mixed start-up field. In addition to the aforementioned Faze Clan there are also teams like Mousesports, Hellraisers and Virtus.pro in place. The latter team has been tough during the first two tournaments they played with the five player. Now, however, they get the chance in a tournament where the last four teams rank on HLTV's top 30 ranking.

The tournament will be settled in Syma Sport-és Rendezvényközpont, in the Hungarian capital, Budapest.

The country with the most representatives in the tournament is Poland, having ten players coming from two full teams of five. Next comes the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with each having eight players in place. In total, twelve best of two matches will be played, followed by two best of three Semi-finals and one best of five Grand Final.

As the tournament is aimed at the V4 countries (Visegrád Group), consisting of Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Solvakia, only teams with a link to those regions are eligible to take part.

The event consists of eight teams, four of which were invited and four which from country based qualifiers.

Format and Schedule

The tournament begins with a Round Robin group game. The eight teams have been divided into two groups, in which teams face each other in matches played in the best of two maps format. The two best teams in each group then go to the playoffs, starting with semifinals. The semifinals are to be best of three maps, while the finals are determined over five maps.
