Like the rounds held in previous games (like MLB The Show 20), players will win $15,000 and lots of other prizes, including ‘Stubs’ for in-game content. Below, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about this epic MLB The Show 21 event.
MLB The Show 21 Summer Circuit
Starting Saturday, July 24, the ‘Summer Circuit’ competition will be open to players 18 years of age and older who have registered on Battlefy.
Those interested in competing will be asked to assemble a Diamond Dynasty team in MLB The Show 21 to compete. The event will consist of 3 qualifying stages, the first taking place on July 24, the second on August 7, and the third on August 21 and 22.
After each qualifier, the top players of the first day will compete against each other in a knockout tournament taking place the next day, which will reduce the competition to the game’s 64 best players. . At that point, those top 64 players will compete against each other in another knockout format for a spot in the Finals.
Following this round, the Finals will take place, where the top four players will compete live on the Sony San Diego Twitch channel to win $15,000 in cash, Stubs, and MLB merchandise. The winner will receive $15,000, a ball to be used in the actual home Derby, $1000 to spend on the MLB online store, and over 1 million Stubs.
Worst case: if you’re short, there should be another ‘Autumn Circuit’ series at the end of the year for another money-making opportunity.
So with only a few days left to register for this epic MLB The Show 21 Summer Circuit, now is the time to enter and increase your chances of winning that $15,000.
