2020 Magic Pro League season
Starting in August 2020, Magic: the Gathering’s Organized Play calendar will be moving away from seasons that follow the calendar year (the 2019 season) back to seasons that are split over multiple calendar years (the 2020-2021 season). But the 2019 season ends in December 2019, so in order to fill the gap between then and the beginning of the 2020-2021 season, the Magic Pro League will hold a shortened seven-month season.
In 2020 the Rivals League will be introduced, and the MPL will be reduced to a 24-player league with players able to earn up to $50,000 in appearance fees in addition to prizes earned at tournaments. MPL players will also be invited to Mythic Invitationals and all Tabletop Players Tour events.
For the shortened 2020 season, the 24 players will be made up of the Top 20 members of the Magic Pro League at the end of the 2019 season and the Top 4 non-Magic Pro League Mythic Points leaders.
