PARTICIPATING TEAMS

We are thrilled to announce that this year the NAL will consist of 10teams! Last season, Parabellum defeated XSET in our relegation match to secure their spot. XSET made some exciting changes to their roster, and they will continue to participate in the NAL as our 10th team.

FORMAT

As announced in the Global Esports Event Guide, Stage 1 will occur over 5 weeks with 9 playdays. NAL's broadcast will take place Tuesday and Wednesdays which means you get 4 weeks of super weeks and then our final playday during the last week.

Same as last season, the 10 teams will be playing in a best-of-1 round robin format with no draws.
