The four-day tournament is slated to begin March 21, with two days of group round-robin matches kicking off the event. The preseason series’ single-elimination finals will be played the next weekend, on March 28-29.
All matches across the first two days will be played from 10am AEDT. Each day during the round-robin is expected to run until 4pm with a half-hour break after two games. The finals days are expected to run 10am to 5pm AEDT.
As well as the preseason bracket, the League of Legends tournament will also play host to an exhibition match for chosen students, to be played on Day 4.
This exhibition match will see former OPL stars Brandon “Juves” Defina and Jackson “Pabu” Pavone draft two teams from the pool of players involved in the four-day tournament, before competing in a best-of-three format.
