Основной спонсор турнира с английской стороны не смог выполнить свои обязательства перед лигой, поэтому на данный момент его проведение не представляется возможным. Все анонсированные бои будут проведены на других ближайших ивентах лиги. Деньги за билеты будут автоматически возмещены в полном объеме. Лига приносит свои извинения блельщикам за доставленные неудобства.
