During the Hi-Rez Expo held in Atlanta, Georgia last month Season 6 of the SPL was revealed to be undergoing some major changes to its structure. There will be no more online games during the regular seasons. Instead all matches will be played live in the Skillshot Studios in Alpharetta, Atlanta with teams either relocating or flying there regularly. Regional restrictions are also being lifted and players from all around the world can compete as long as they are included in one of the participating teams' rosters.
We're excited to reveal our plans for the #SPL in Season 6!— SmitePro (@SmitePro) November 16, 2018
All games in 2019 will be played LIVE on LAN at the @SkillshotMedia studio!
We're also continuing our partnership with @WatchMixer for another amazing year of SMITE esports!

A total of 10 organisations will be taking part in the SMITE Pro League in 2019 and we're happy to be one of the partners Hi-Rez chose to continue collaborating with. We're already working on building our roster for the next season and on potentially setting up their base of operations in the Atlanta area. Look out for our further announcements before the return of the SPL in early 2019!
