3on3 Summer League 2012
Our seasonal 3on3 competition awaits you in August. Read about the format, schedule, rules, and prizes, then get ready to play and/or watch some matches!

Unlike the previous seasonal competitions, we have decided to skip the group stage and focus on a more flexible playoff schedule, making it easier for teams to play and for us to stream as many matches as possible.


Four qualifying tournaments will be held, with the top 4 teams from each one advancing directly to the playoff stage. Time limit in qualifying matches: 5 minutes!

The brackets for the playoff will be decided by live draw. In the first round, qualifier winners will be paired with fourth place teams, while the runners-up from each qualifier will meet teams that finished third. Time limit in playoff matches: 10 minutes!

The "Best-of-Two" format will be used in every match. Each team hosts a round and overall score at the end decides the winner. In case of a tie, both teams will play at a neutral host until a goal is scored, switching sides every 5 minutes.
