The group stage of the League of Legends LEC Spring 2021 has come to an end and six European heavyweights will battle it out in the playoffs for silverware.

As the league stable stands after the final round of the group stage, G2 and Rogue sealed the top two spots with 14 wins each. They are followed by MAD Lions, Schalke 04, Fnatic and SK gaming, sorting out the playoffs' top six spots.

As per the rules of League of Legends European Championship (LEC), the playoff round will follow a modified double-elimination format where the six teams are segregated into a winners bracket and a losers bracket. The top four teams G2, Rogue, MAD, and Schalke have been seeded into the winners' bracket while the remaining two, MAD and Fnatic will compete in the losers bracket.

The winners' bracket will be played as a regular knockout tournament, with defeated teams falling to the losers bracket. The losers bracket will be played in a king-of-the-hill format, where the two lowest seeds will play in the first match, and every subsequent match will feature the winner of the previous match and the next lowest seed.

The two top teams from the winners bracket and the losers bracket will play against each other in the grand final.
