They will be getting rid of Academy Rush on Fridays to switch to five Academy games. Also, Monday Night League games will be moved to the weekend for the rest of the season. Essentially things will go back to how they were last season.
With this announcement also came that some of the games may be viewed on a delay. They are trying online for the first time and this will definitely be a challenge due to internet problems and other issues that may arrive. It is likely that there will be more pauses than normal and with that, the possibility of delayed streams to try and iron out the issues.
Either way, what is most important is that the season will be continuing almost completely on schedule. The hope is that other leagues that have been suspended will follow suit and it seems likely that they will do so in some capacity.
