During this event, Operators will try to prove who's the best of Six's specialists on a new map: Stadium, a new limited time map especially made for this competition. On this map, walls of bulletproof glass create new situations where you can see your opponents without being able to engage. Matches are Bomb matches with Pick and Ban, 3-minute rounds on a 3-round rotation. All operators will be available for all players on this playlist and six of the competitors will be automatically equipped with their Road to S.I. gear: Blitz, Caveira, Hibana, Mozzie, Sledge, and Thermite.

For the duration of the event, the Road to S.I. 2020 Battle Pass will be available with one Free track and one Premium track. With 35 tiers on both tracks, it proposes a total of 48 rewards for the competitors, including the exclusive customization items available in the Road to S.I. game mode. The Premium pass is available for 1200 R6 Credits and the Premium Bundle that unlocks the Premium pass and the first 12 tiers can be purchased for 2400 R6 Credits. Each tier can be unlocked through playing the game or for 180 R6 Credits.
