ELEAGUE will kick off with a six-week regular season, running from May 24 to July 1, followed by a last-chance qualifier round and by the playoffs. The knockout stages will culminate with the best-of-three grand final, called "Global Championship", on July 30.
The tournament will feature live event coverage from Turner's Atlanta Studios, with matches being broadcast exclusively on Twitch from Tuesday to Thursday and simultaneously on Twitch and TBS on Friday evenings.
