- A 1st match will see “FNATIC Classics” face off against “Nora-Rengo Classics”, 2 iconic teams from the Asia-Pacific region, in a re-match of the intense quarter-finals of both the Six Invitational 2019 and the Pro League Finals Season IX that concluded with 1 victory for each team.
- A 2nd match with “Aerowolf Classics” vs “Wildcard Gaming Classics”, will remake the impressive APAC Finals Grand Finale from Pro League Season X.

About Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
Alongside a thriving professional esports scene and a community of over 55 million registered players, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of a fast-paced, ever-evolving multiplayer experience grounded in the selection of unique Operators. Using the right mix of tactics and destruction, Rainbow Six teams engage their enemies in sieges, where both sides have exclusive skills and gadgets at their disposal. Defenders prepare by transforming the environments around them into modern strongholds, while attackers use recon drones to gain intel for carefully planning their assault. With access to dozens of Operators inspired by real world counter-intelligence agents from around the globe, players can choose exactly how they want to approach each challenge they encounter. Through the constant addition of new Operators and maps that add to the depth of both strategy and combat, the unpredictability of each round of Rainbow Six Siege sets a new bar for intensity and competition in gaming.
