The ESL One: Rio Major, a $2 million Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event, was originally scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro from May 11th-24th, but was postponed to November 9th-22nd due to the coronavirus pandemic.

All playoff matches are best-of-three.

The North American champion will receive 400 Pro Tour points and $18,000 from the $60,000 prize pool. The runner-up will receive 285 Pro Tour points and $13,000 US.

The two groups will play alternately until May 3rd. The playoffs are expected to end on 10th May.
