Welcome to Northern Arena EA NHL Cup season 1 presented by Xbox. For our second series, we are putting in place a 2v2 month long league that will see our original players from the 1v1 tournament drafting a second player to join their team and compete for the 5k prize pool.
The Northern Arena NHL Cup Season 1 is the first initiative from Northern Arena in the NHL esports scene. 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.
