Red Bull has drafted the eight teams into two groups, which are:

Group A

Group B

These two groups will play out the first stage on December 9, in a standard Bo3 format. The best team from each group will move into the semifinals, while the last team will be eliminated. The remaining two teams from each group will then be placed in the quarterfinals — played on Dec. 10 — where Home Ground will pivot to its trademark Home and Away format.

Playoff matches will be Bo5 and each team will pick a Home map. If either team wins both Home maps they are awarded the match win but, if not, the series proceeds as a regular Bo5. The final day of the event, Dec. 11, will see the semifinals and grand final played out.

Cosmetic content drops will be available throughout the tournament, according to an earlier press release. The distribution of the $100,000 USD prize pool has yet to be announced.

Red Bull Home Ground 3 will be the "final act" of the 2022 season and the last international tournament of the year prior to the VCT Kickoff Tournament in February.
