As we've come to expect, the group draw itself is accompanied by the schedule of opening matchups. There's no shortage of interesting matches kicking things off on both days - Group A and B run on Saturday, followed by Groups C and D on Sunday. All opening matches start at 04:00 CEST (10:00 local time in Shanghai).
Team Liquid vs. Team Spirit
Newbee vs. Natus Vincere
Virtus.pro vs. TNC Predator
Evil Geniuses vs. Vici Gaming
Team Secret vs. The Final Tribe
Mineski vs. Forward Gaming
PSG.LGD vs. Infamous
OpTic Gaming vs. VGJ.Thunder
Each group will be over in a single day, but no teams will be eliminated in groups at this event. The top two teams from each group's double elimination bracket will head to the main event upper bracket and the bottom two to the lower bracket. Group Stage takes place June 2-3, then Playoffs June 4-7 and 9-10. Only the final two days will be in front of a live audience.
