PREDICTIONS

NBA 2K League ‘THE TICKET’ powered by AT&T Predictions

FULL PRESS RELEASE

THE TICKET powered by AT&T, the third and final NBA 2K League tournament of the season, will be a 20-game, single-elimination tournament played over the course of three days (Thursday, June 13 to Saturday, June 15) at The Fortress at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.

Seeding for the tournament will be determined by each team’s record during the four regular-season weeks that precede the tournament.

All 21 teams will participate. Games will run from 4-11 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 13; from 5-11 p.m. ET on Friday, June 14; and from 1-5 p.m. ET and 7-10 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 15. All games will be live streamed on the NBA 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels.

Unlike the previous two tournaments of the season (THE TIPOFF AND THE TURN), the winner of THE TICKET is guaranteed a spot in the 2019 NBA 2K League Playoffs, which tip off Wednesday, July 24. If the tournament winner has one of the league’s top eight regular-season records, then the top eight teams will make the playoffs.

All 21 teams will also be competing for a prize pool of $180,000. The winner of THE TICKET will earn over half of the prize pool, with the remainder being awarded to the second to eighth place teams (first place – $90,720; second place – $29,760; third and fourth place – $15,360 each; fifth-eighth place – $7,200 each). In addition to prize money, each team that wins a tournament takes home a champion banner – with the goal of collecting all three banners that link together to form THE BANNER CHAIN powered by AT&T. 76ers GC and Warriors Gaming Squad each took home a portion of THE BANNER CHAIN with victories at THE TIPOFF and THE TURN, respectively.

Attendees will be able to purchase exclusive NBA 2K League Champion-branded apparel designed for the tournament. Fans will also be able to take photos with the coveted NBA 2K League Championship trophy and will be treated to live musical performances during the event.

THE TICKET will be the second NBA 2K League tournament to be held outside of the NBA 2K League Studio Powered by Intel in Long Island City, New York. Last month, THE TURN powered by AT&T was held at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor Hotel and Casino. Following THE TICKET, there are four weeks of regular-season play for teams to secure their spot in the playoffs. The 2019 NBA 2K League Playoffs will run for three days and culminate with the 2019 NBA 2K League Finals on Saturday, Aug. 3.
