|2020–21 Magic Pro League|
In May 2021, Magic Esports announced a return to in-person play post COVID-19 for the 2022–23 Players Tour Season. Although digital play was considered here to stay it is supposed to be only part of the equation going forward. As a result, the 2021–22 Players Tour Season is going to be the last season featuring the MPL and the Rivals League. Players will not be competing for another League season. Instead, they'll be competing for a place in the 2022 World Championship.
The existing Split Championship structure will remain in place, but Wizards of the Coast will be increasing the prize pool and updating the prize structure compared to the Strixhaven Championship. Set Championships will feature prize pools of $450,000 per event, over three events. On the other hand, League Weekends and the Gauntlets will not be run in 2021–2022.
The 2021-2022 Magic Pro League will consist of 24 players:
- Top 4 MPL players from final standings for the 2020–2021 season.
- Top 4 Rivals League players from final standings for the 2020–2021 season.
- Top 8 from the MPL Gauntlet.
- Top 4 from the Rivals Gauntlet.
- Top 4 from the Challenger Gauntlet.
