Jazz Gaming Announces 2018 Season Schedule

All games will be streamed live on Twitch

SALT LAKE CITY (May 9, 2018) – Jazz Gaming today announced its 2018 regular season schedule. Last weekend, the team competed in “THE TIPOFF,” the league’s season opening tournament, finishing 2-1 in pool play and making it to the quarterfinals before falling to Cavs Legion GC, 71-70.

On Saturday, May 12, Jazz Gaming will tipoff its regular season with a double header at the NBA 2K League Studio Powered by Intel in New York City, where they will face Kings Guard Gaming at 1 p.m. MT before its rematch against Cavs Legion GC at 4 p.m. MT.

Jazz Gaming’s 15-week regular season will feature both weekly games and tournaments, followed by the NBA 2K League Playoffs and Finals in August. Seeding and matchups for the final two tournaments will be determined by a team’s record during the four weeks of regular-season games preceding each tournament.
