About this Megathread

This thread will reflect all official player and coach changes on or after July 25th (the beginning of Stage 4). All changes will be referenced by official communication by teams, Blizzard, or the player of discussion. Unofficial sources and rumors will not be listed.

Important Dates

September 30th: Signing window opens for teams to exercise team options on existing player contracts, negotiate extensions with currently signed players, or sign players from their affiliated academy team competing in Contenders.

October 7th: Teams that have completed exercising (or declining) all existing contract options may submit free-agent player contracts to the League Office for approval. Teams may also submit player trades for approval.

November 11th: 2019 season agreements officially end. Any players not under contract into the 2020 season become free agents. In order to facilitate these players signing with new teams before the initial roster deadline, those players set to become free agents in November are permitted to discuss contracts with other teams before their 2019 contracts formally expire.

November 15th: Deadline for all teams to have a minimum of eight players under contract.

June 14th, 2020: 2020 Season trade/sign deadline.

Update to Two-Way Players

The 2020 season will introduce an evolution of the two-way player contract to incorporate player and team feedback from the 2019 season. Teams and players may negotiate the right to designate the player as eligible to compete on an affiliated Contenders team. Any player on the roster may agree to be eligible for Contenders play, but a maximum of four players may be designated as “two-way” players at any given time.
