With the completion of these matches, the WoW Arena World Championship Season 1 Circuit will be paused for a week. After the Easter weekend, games will resume on April 10 and 11.

Season 1 Finals and beyond

The full Season 1 Circuit has matches across a total of four weekends. Once they’re all finished, the four best World of Warcraft teams from each region will head into the Season 1 Finals. 

The teams that place in the top six in the Arena World Championship Season 1 Circuit, will also be eligible to compete in the Season 2 Circuit.

Meanwhile, the bottom two teams will have to face challengers in the Relegation Cup. The top two Relegation Cup teams of each region will then move onto the Season 2 Circuit.

When both the Season 1 and Season 2 Circuits are over, the best World of Warcraft teams will compete in the Arena World Championship 2021 Grand Finals.
