  • Teams will get bye weeks
  • Longer breaks during the season, such as a Protracted break around the League's All-Star Weekend (slated to take place between Stages Two and Three)

This is to assist with"keeping players new" and providing teams the opportunity to visit their upcoming home places. Hopefully the program is done in a manner where players and team staff can find a fantastic balance between work and real life.

Hopefully the affirmation of the details for the upcoming season means we will soon get to see that the reveal of their new jerseys, team names and colours for the expansion teams, and statements for new rosters and roster updates.
