Welcome to the Northern Arena NHL Cup 6v6 Series! The NHL Cup is a premiere NHL 20 6v6 tournament on Xbox One. This free-to-enter tournament will feature a qualifying stage where the community’s best 6v6 teams in Canada and USA will compete to represent each of the 32 NHL franchises in the league (including Seattle). Once teams have qualified, they will play throughout the month of August 2020 to compete for a chance at a $10,000 (USD) prize pool. Teams are divided into their respective East and West Conferences. The regular season consists of a two-week long schedule to determine the top 16 teams in the 6v6 community.
These teams then compete in a playoff bracket with best-of-5 series to decide who will be crowned the Northern Arena NHL Cup 6v6 Series Champion.
Welcome to Northern Arena EA NHL Cup season 1 presented by Xbox. For our third series, we are putting in place a 6v6 month long league that will see major 6s teams represent an NHL team and compete for the 10k prize pool. Northern Arena has worked behind the scenes in other NHL tournaments, but it is the first time that the Canadian company creates its own NHL initiative. The goal for this community EA event is to promote the sports, the game, but most importantly the best NHL20 players in North America at the moment. The event is approved by EA and supported by some NHL teams. Not all players are official representatives of respective NHL teams.
