In line with the start of the new Rainbow Six Siege season “Steel Wave”, the teams and groups of the first phase of the US division are now known. Here you will find the most important information regarding group composition, rust and change of players of the participating teams.display

The starter season prize pool is $ 250,000. This was split up for the individual phases. For the first and the second phase, $ 50,000 are available. The remaining $ 150,000 is reserved for the finals.

The groups

The first team in Group A is the winner of last season’s North America Spacestation Gaming. These were then allowed to designate one of the three other teams in their group. The same was true in Group B for the runner-up team SoloMid. An overview of both groups follows.
