Professional league play is coming to Magic: The Gathering Arena and the Magic Pro League starting May 11—and you can catch the action on!

The Magic Pro League (MPL) features 32 of the best players in the world competing in divisional play across three "splits," each feeding MTG Arena Mythic Championships with $750,000 in prizes.

The first split—called the Spark Split—will see players competing in four divisions, with top performers in each division earning a guaranteed slot in Day Two of Mythic Championship III, the first Mythic Championship run entirely on MTG Arena.

Check out the four divisions here:

Each week in the Spark Split, players will play Best-of-Three Standard. We'll then air matches and highlights Saturdays during the split from noon–4 p.m. PT on The Spark Split runs May 11–June 8.

Split 2 (Core Split) will run August 3–September 7 and will feed Mythic Championship V in September. Split 3 (codenamed "Archery" Split) will run October 5–November 2 and will feed Mythic Championship VII in November.

We'll be announcing the casting team of our Saturday shows a bit later, so stay tuned!
