Let’s summarize everything announced for the next season:

  • The 2021 season will start in the spring – a later start than usual to give more time for planning
  • Tournaments are making a comeback! Summer Showdowns, Regional Cups and Countdown Cups are all coming back with some new innovations.
  • Two regions of competition will be utilized to limit travel concerns
  • End of season plans still remain to crown a global championship
  • A longer Off-Season will have more events: Flash Ops, Contenders and others to get professionals back in the grind
