The Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Split 2 Playoffs 2024 will be held at the SAP Arena in Mannheim, Germany, from late August to early September, according to an announcement from EA and Respawn Entertainment, the game’s developer and publisher.

This event will feature 40 of the world’s best Apex Legends teams, providing crucial Playoff points for the ALGS Championship later this year.

Historic LAN Event for Apex Legends in Germany

The ALGS is the premier esports series for Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale game Apex Legends. The series follows a two-split format, featuring two major international playoff events and a global finals tournament. Each Split Playoff includes 40 teams and a US$1 million prize pool. The top 30 teams by points from Split 1 and Split 2 will advance to the ALGS 2024 Championship.

This upcoming tournament marks the first time ALGS is hosting a LAN event in Germany. The SAP Arena, a renowned sports and entertainment venue with a capacity of around 15,000 for sporting events, will also host its first-ever esports event. The finals will take place from August 29th to September 1st.

ALGS Expands Global Reach

“The Split 2 Playoffs marks Apex Legends esports’ highly anticipated return to Europe and our first-ever ALGS event in Germany. With past stops in the UK, the US, and now Germany, we’re continuing to deliver more ALGS action to more fans around the world,” John Nelson, Senior Director of Esports at EA Entertainment said about the development.

Germany is the latest stop for ALGS teams, following the first split of the year in Los Angeles, USA. The Split 1 Playoffs recorded approximately 567,000 peak viewers, a slight decrease compared to the same split last year.

It can also be recalled that the North American qualifier for the Apex Legends Global Series Split 1 earlier this year was also remembered for an infamous hacking incident that saw players like Noyan “Genburten” Ozkose and Phillip “ImperialHal” Dosen get their accounts hacked.
