We kickoff our season in Eugene, Oregon at the world’s longest-running tournament: Summer Solstice. Each year Solstice is a great chance for the team to come together and begin to show what’s in store for the rest of the season. Oh, and there’s a theme. And costumes. Last year it was Janelle Monae’s “PNYK”.
The Pro-Elite Challenge is our first stop along the Triple Crown Tour. It’s our first opportunity to see a full field of competition that we’re likely to see for the rest of the regular season and at the National Championships.
The crown jewel of the Triple Crown Tour, the US Open hosts teams from the best countries in the world. This year we are seeing international competition from Colombia (Revolution), Japan (UNO, HUCK), and Germany (their National Team). Not to mention the top eight finishers from last year’s USA National Championships. The semifinals and finals will be broadcast on ESPN2/ESPN+.
The finale of the Triple Crown Tour and the regular season is our last, best competitive opportunity before the National Championships. The finals will be broadcast on Labor Day on ESPN+.
Northwest Regionals is our qualifying tournament to the National Championships. We face competition from Portland, Vancouver BC, Seattle, and Salt Lake City. Since the regional realignment after 2012, Riot has won Northwest Regionals every year.
The National Championships are returning to San Diego at the Del Mar Polo Fields for another year. Last year Riot made it to the semifinals, finishing third. The semifinals and finals of Nationals will be broadcast on ESPN+.
