During the season, the 16 regular-season matchups, which will occur each week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, will determine future playoff seeding. Select NBA 2K League teams will host rivalry matches and round-robin events in their local markets.

The 2020 season will once again feature three in-season (THE TIPOFF, THE TURN and THE TICKET), which will all see teams compete for banners that link together to form THE BANNER CHAIN powered by AT&T. The first two tournaments – THE TIPOFF and THE TURN – will see all 23 teams compete. The top nine playoff seeds will be determined by regular-season record, with the remaining 14 teams competing in THE TICKET to decide the 10th and final spot in the 2020 NBA 2K League Playoffs. The playoffs will tip-off on Wednesday, July 29, and take place over four days of gameplay.

Each team will have five bye weeks during the season, including a league-wide bye week July 1 through July 4.

During the 2020 season, the NBA 2K League will award $1.4 million in prize money across THE TIPOFF and THE TURN, the six round-robin local events and the NBA 2K League Playoffs.
