SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz’s esports team, Jazz Gaming, begins its NBA 2K League season with remote play starting on May 21.

The NBA 2K League was originally slated to begin with The Tipoff Tournament from March 24-28. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the esports league postponed the start of its 2020 schedule.

“The remainder of the 2020 season schedule and structure, including dates of tournaments, rivalry matches and round-robin events, will be shared as information becomes available,” Jazz Gaming stated in a press release.

“We’re eager to get to work and continue growing as a team and organization this season,” Jazz Gaming head coach Jelani “Comp” Mitchell said when the schedule was first announced in February. “We’re looking to build off of last year’s foundation that we created with our three returning players while adding new faces and personalities to the fold.”

The league will open its season with at least six weeks of remote gameplay. The Utah Jazz’s esports franchise will compete from the Jazz Gaming Lounge at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Jazz Gaming will start the 2020 regular season on Thursday, May 21 against HEAT Check Gaming at 7 p.m. (MDT).

NBA 2K League play will be simulcast live on the NBA 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels.

Jazz Gaming finished the 2019 season with an 8-8 record. It was the 13th best record out of the league’s 21 teams. The esports team is entering its third season as a franchise this season.
