  • What is the format of the eFootball.Pro League?

    The eFootball.Pro League is taking place from December 2018 to May 2019, and has 3 stages: The Regular Season, The Playoffs, and the Finals.

    The Regular Season goes from December to April and has 5 matchdays. The matches are played once per month on Saturdays or Sundays. After the 5 matchdays, the best 3 teams get a direct bye to the Finals, and the last 3 teams go to the Playoffs. The winner of the Playoffs earns a spot in the Final. Regular Season and Playoff games are best-of-two (Bo2).

    The Playoffs are in May, and the winner qualifies for the Finals.

    The Finals are played also in May, immediately following the Playoffs. The Finals consist of Semi-finals (Bo3, best-of-three) and the Final (Bo5, best-of-five).

  • How does the Bo2 format work in the eFootball.Pro League?

    Regular Season and Playoff matches are Bo2 (best-of-two). This means that in each match, teams play two Pro Evolution Soccer games.

    If a team wins both games, it wins the full match and is awarded 3 points. If a team wins one game and draws the other, it wins the full match and is awarded 3 points.

    If each team wins one game, or if both games end in a draw, the full match ends in a draw and each team is awarded 1 point.

    The points earned determine the Regular Season standings, and the winner of the Playoffs.
