WHERE TO WATCH

EUROPEAN LEAGUE SEASON 2021: COMPLETE UPDATE

Competitive format

The European Leagues matches will be played in an online round robin, Best-of-one format with overtime.

Competitive Calendar

For 2021, we have decided to spread the 9 playdays over 7 weeks instead of 5, with only one match per week for each team, on Mondays, starting at 6PM CET. This will give the teams more time to prepare for their match.

The last two playdays will be played on a weekend, on the 7th week; a special occasion that will bring an extra dose of excitement as the teams define their final stage ranking in an all-or-nothing showdown.

EUL Timeline 110321

Note: to leave room for the Six Invitational 2021, the calendar for Stage 1 has been adjusted.
