Tournament layout and more details

The ESPN EXP Apex Legends Pro-Am will break this huge participant list up into teams of three and they will all compete against each other in three rounds of battle. 

Official teams are still yet to be confirmed by organizers but further details will presumably be made clear to fans when the tournament goes live. 

We'll continue to update this article if there are any changes to the participant list or - for example - a set of rules and scoring systems are announced before it takes place. Until then, enjoy some games of your own in Apex Legends.
