The NBA 2K League has announced that the first stage of qualifiers for Season 3 will run from October 22 to November 10.

Players looking to make it to the league will be required to win at least 50 games in NBA 2K20’s Pro-Am Team Arena or at The Rec and maintain a 50% win rate in their games in order to advance in the process.

The Pro-Am competition will have a 5-on-5 format with participants using their existing MyPlayer characters, following that of official NBA 2K League games.

During the qualifier period, an NBA 2K League tab will appear on the NBA 2K20 menu that will help aspirants track their progress.

The qualifier is open to anyone around the world who has a copy of NBA 2K20 on either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, an internet connection, and is 18 or older by the time it begins.

Aside from playing in the qualifier, aspirants to the NBA 2K League must also complete an online application by November 10. The application will include questions on the applicant’s gaming background, basketball IQ, NBA 2K IQ, as well as an audio submission about why the applicant wants to be drafted into the NBA 2K League. The online application will be available on later this month.

Following the conclusion of the qualifier, the NBA 2K League will host the NBA 2K League Combine in December. The best players from both the qualifier and the Combine will be made eligible for the NBA 2K League Season 3 draft.

The NBA 2K League will also be hosting international tryouts with selected top players from outside North America to bolster the 2020 draft pool with international talent. League-sanctioned amateur Pro-Am tournaments worldwide may also award spots in the draft for top performers.
