For the first time, all stages of the Major will be played in front of a live audience. The Riocentro will host the Challengers and Legends stage, while the Champions Stage will be played in the Jeunesse Arena. The decision to move the first two stages was done in response to overwhelming demand for tickets after the Jeunesse Arena immediately sold out.
