About the SMITE Pro League
The SMITE Pro League is our elite competitive circuit on the Battleground of the Gods. It features eight of the top-performing professional teams in the world, and showcases the best mechanical talent that SMITE has to offer.
All of our SPL teams have relocated to Georgia for Season 9 so they can live together, scrim together, and play their weekly matches live on LAN from the Hi-Rez Productions studio in Alpharetta, GA. With the added stability of year-long salaries and guaranteed housing, the leading pro SMITE players from all over the globe can focus on their year-round fight for gain and glory on the Battleground of the Gods.
At the end of the year, their SPL journey will culminate in one ultimate battle at the SMITE World Championship. Several teams will enter, but only one will emerge victorious and lift the coveted hammer as the true gods of SMITE.
The SMITE Pro League season is broken into three phases, with two cross-league Masters events at the end of Phases 1 and 2. At the end of the season, teams will also compete in a qualifier round for a seat in the pinnacle event of the year -- the SMITE World Championship.
In Season 9, the SPL will use a points-based system that awards each team points based on where they placed at the end of Phase 2 and Phase 3. At the end of the season, the total points a team has will determine their seeding in the SMITE World Championship Qualifiers.REGULAR SEASON PLAY
Each phase in the SMITE Pro League will follow a double round robin format with best-of-three matches. The regular season is split into three phases:
Both of this year’s SMITE Masters events will be two-weeks long, cross-league LANs. Masters will follow 16 teams from both the SMITE Challenger Circuit (four from NA, four from EU) and the SMITE Pro League (all 8 teams).
