The top two teams from the Rainbow Six Siege Open Series Season 2 will claim spots in the next Pro Series season. On the other side of the coin, the bottom two teams from the Pro Series will be relegated to the Open Series for the next season. Both leagues will have a round-robin group stage format with best-of-one matches.
The top four teams from each group will make it through to the Grand Finals. Teams will then be placed in a double-elimination bracket. All matches are best-of-three in the bracket, with the exception of the finals, which is best-of-five. The final stage will take place from 10 to 11 April 2021.
