The winning players of each Finals bracket (five per console, 10 total) will earn eligibility for the NBA 2K League 2021 Draft (Date TBD). Additionally, two players from losing teams (one per console) will be awarded a prospect badge, also earning Draft eligibility.
In order to be eligible for the tournament, Captains must submit an application on behalf of their five-player team via Smash.GG by 11:59pm on Wednesday, Nov. 4. Submitting an application, however, does not guarantee your spot in the tournament. You can find out more about the registration process here.
In addition to the 12 NBA 2K League Draft spots on the line, two Finals MVPs will be named (one per console), who will take home an LG UltraGear 27-inch 4K Gaming Monitor.
But that’s not all.
In partnership with Canada Basketball, Scout The North powered by OLG will also be the official scouting tournament for Team Canada! Canadian players will be cast in spotlight with an opportunity to showcase why they should be the first ones to represent Canada on the international NBA 2K stage.
The Group Stages of Scout The North powered by OLG will take place from Friday, November 6 through Tuesday, November 10, with up to 32 spots per console (XBOX One & PlayStation 4). Each team will be placed into a group and be required to play one best-of-three series with each of the other teams in their group.
The top team from each group will earn an invitation to the Scout The North Finals. The Finals will take place Thursday, November 12 and consist of two single-elimination Best-Of-3 brackets (one per console) and will be broadcasted on the Raptors Uprising GC Twitch channel.
