The first default day for matches will be April 25th with all regular season matches needing to have been played by June 12th. Playoffs will commence in the days following and will conclude in all regions by July 17th.

Registration for teams which did not participate in Season 40 is now open and will remain so until April 19, 2022 03:00AM. Teams which are participants of the current season will need wait until April 12th, when move-ups and move-downs will be announced.

It is worth noting that ESL Challenger League will follow a slightly modified schedule due to scheduling of other ESL competitions. The ECL season will have its first matchday on April 26th and all group matches will need to be completed by June 19th. The playoffs will then take place from June 21st to 26th.
