  5. Washington Freedom (WAF)
  6. San Francisco Unicorns (SFU)

Out of the six teams, four of them are owned by the franchises of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which includes:

  1. MI New York: Mumbai Indians
  2. Texas Super Kings: Chennai Super Kings
  3. LA Knight Riders: Kolkata Knight Riders
  4. Seattle Orcas: Delhi Capitals

Where is MLC 2024 hosted?

Similar to the previous season, the MLC 2024 will be hosted at two main venues namely:

  1. Grand Prairie Stadium in Grand Prairie, Texas
  2. Church Street Park in Morrisville, North Carolina

What is the format of MLC 2024?

All 6 teams will play in a T20 format in MLC 2024. Each team competes against every other in a round-robin set-up, with one at the home ground and another at the opponent’s venue.

The top 4 teams will qualify for the playoffs and participate in three different rounds before entering the finals:

  • Eliminator: 3rd vs 4th
  • Qualifier: 1st vs 2nd
  • Challenger: (Winner of Eliminator round) vs (Loser of Qualifier round).
  • Final: (Winner of Qualifier round) vs (Winner of challenger round)

Teams ranking in the top two positions in the MLC 2024 points table will clash in the Qualifier round and the winner directly qualifies into the finals. However, the advantage of securing the first two spots in the points table is that the loser of the Qualifier round still gets a chance to compete with the winner of the Eliminator in the Challenger stage. The winner of the challenger and Qualifier round will compete against each other in the Final.
