2024 E-League Season kicks off today!

Thumbs ready, players ready, go!

The 2024 E-League Season, presented by Nivea Men, is set to get underway on Monday featuring a host of innovative and exciting changes.

Highly-credentialed Glory duo Ryan Naylor and Jesse Racey will showcase their skills in a revamped competition consisting of a new five-week regular season format, followed by two packed weekends of playoffs, beginning on Monday, March 11 and 12 featuring two divisions and 24 players. 

The E-League, the top division, will see 12 of the best local competitors go head-to-head live on Twitch each week in collaboration with broadcast partner, Lowkii, with the top 8 competitors progressing to the E-League 2024 Playoffs.

The E-League Challengers is the new secondary division where an additional 12 players will clash for the chance at a miracle run through the Gauntlet – a brand new do-or-die playoff bracket that will see the bottom 4 E-League players face off against the top 4 Challengers for the final two playoffs spots.

Jesse will be in action first as the Challengers kick off on Monday (11th March) and Ryan will follow suit on Tuesday (12th March) when the E-League gets underway.

With a total of 10 players remaining, the E-League 2024 Playoffs will see the top two ranked players from the E-League regular season seeded directly into the upper semi finals.

A double elimination bracket and best-of-one match format will leave a combined 8 remaining players after the first day.

From here, the final 8 players will battle it out for their share of the $10,000AUD prize pool and E-League Championship on April 27 and 28, 2024.

The 2024 E-League champion will receive a direct seat in the EA SPORTS FC™ Pro World Championships later this year and will represent Oceania and their A-League club on the international stage.

This season, fans will be able to watch every E-League match live on Twitch or via aleagues.com.au/e-league
