The first part of the MLG Starcraft Spring Arena starts this Friday, April 20th. Spanning over a three day period this event will kick off the Spring Season.

Those from Europe who are looking to watch streams may have some long nights or in fact early mornings ahead of you if you're planning on spectating this tournament.

To date there has been no official format announced for what the map order will be or whether it will be a best of x, with this information expected to be announced much closer to the event, we will keep you updated on that once it's announced.

In this seasons MLG there are seven Koreans, with only one foreigner in attendance, CA's Chris 'HuK' Loranger, something that isn’t really surprising when taking the current Korean attendance ratio's within tournaments like IPL4, Iron Squid and MLG into account.
