The NBA 2K League is open to players who are 18 and over, but until Friday the exact cutoff date for the inaugural season was unclear.
The league announced that players must be at least 18 on or before January 31, 2018 to be considered draft eligible.
Draft hopefuls currently have until the end of January to win 50 Pro-Am games in NBA 2K18 and complete an online form during the NBA 2K League Qualifier. Those that qualify will move on to February’s tryout stage.
The league’s draft will take place in March and see 85 players selected across the 17 teams.
