With the first phase of the Heroes Global Championship (HGC) complete, the 12 top-ranked teams from around the world are preparing to meet in Jönköping, Sweden for the HGC’s first ever global tournament—the Mid-Season Brawl. From June 10-20, competitors will clash for the championship crown, as well as a share of the $250,000 USD prize pool.
The Mid-Season Brawl consists of two stages:
- Group Stage: Stockholm, Sweden — June 10-14
o Challengers form two groups of six teams each and compete in a single round-robin tournament
- Phoenix Bracket: DreamHack Summer 2017 in Jönköping, Sweden — June 17-19
o The top four teams from each group clash in an epic playoff stage

All matches will be broadcast live on Twitch and Facebook, with every stage of the action cast by HGC commentators, including Jaycie “Gillyweed” Gluck, Wade “Dreadnaught” Penfold, Tim “Trikslyr” Frazier, and Thomas “Khaldor” Kilian. Additional guest commentary will be provided by fan-favorite analysts Josh “JHow” Howard, Christopher “Tetcher” Ivermee, Manuel “Grubby” Schenkhuizen, and James “Kaelaris” Carrol.
