Furthermore, the league will no longer take place at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, but will be hosted at 52 Homestand weekend events across the globe. Each team will get to host at least two events with the possibility of hosting up to five in their respective cities. The twelve remaining matches are divided among the divisions as each gets to host three additional matches.
Moreover, the league schedule will no longer be divided into stages, and the stage playoffs have been cut as well. While each team will have to play 28 matches during the regular season, next year’s matches will only take place on Saturdays and Sundays. During the mid-season break, the league plans to hold an All-Star event. The season will conclude with a Grand Final after the regular season.
