The top 16 players in the world are on the starting line ready to race their way to the title of Spring 2022 Champion and a share of the 20000€ total prize pool
The 2022 Trackmania® Grand League (TMGL) Spring season will kick off on March 6. After claiming the title of Fall 2021 Champion last year, Pac and MNM Gaming will be putting their title on the line as the top 16 players around the world gather to compete online every Sunday from March 6 to April 10. The Final will take place on April 24 and crown the TMGL Spring 2022 Champion.
Since the game’s very first competitions in 2006, Trackmania has been growing over the years and building a thriving competitive ecosystem for both highly skilled professional players and the community at large, reaching over 1 million hours watched worldwide on Twitch and YouTube throughout the 2020-2021 season of the Trackmania Grand League.
Building upon last year’s learnings and successes, Ubisoft is kicking off the Trackmania Grand League 2022 season with an improved and even more dynamic competitive format, and a robust and accessible esports circuit for fans and professional players to enjoy.
During the regular season, players will compete every Sunday in a 1v1v1v1 format and play 5 matches per playday. Each player will be ranked at the end of each match based on their performance and move on to the next match against equally ranked players from the other matches. After the last playday of the Spring season, the top 8 ranked players will qualify for the Final, while the runners up will fight for the last remaining spot for the Final during the Final Chance qualifier.
The TMGL will run at the following dates, with each Championship Week starting at 8PM CET:
- Championship Week 1: Sunday, March 6.
- Championship Week 2: Sunday, March 13.
- Championship Week 3: Sunday, March 20.
- Championship Week 4: Sunday, March 27.
