Team Liquid are in Group C, which begins play on March 23. Also in the group are GODSENT, BIG, Movistar Riders, Party Astronauts and Players (the neutral name for Russia-based Gambit Esports).

The top three teams in each of the four groups advance to next month’s playoffs. Top prize is $175,000 and entry in the $1 million Blast Premier: World Final 2022 in December.
