Horizon Cup 2021 Knockout Stage Bracket

The first bracket will start with a rematch between the two Wild Rift Southeast Asia (SEA) Championship rivals, SBTC Esports and Team Secret. The winner of the quarterfinals will proceed to the semifinals where they will face the top-performing Chinese team, Da Kun Gaming. During the group stage of the Horizon Cup 2021, Dakun Gaming did not lose a single match.

The second Bracket will start with the match between Rolster Y and Sengoku Gaming. The winner will then face the Chinese team, ThunderTalk gaming in the semifinals. ThunderTalk gaming made drastic changes to its roster a few weeks before the Horizon Cup 2021. However, this did not affect its performance, and it is still one of the top-performing teams in the tournament.

The winners of both brackets will face each other in the grand finals to determine who will be the first international champion in the Horizon Cup 2021 alongside earning the lion’s share of the $500,000 prize pool.
