BIG3 is the official creator of the new global sport, FIREBALL3, and is returning for its fourth season this summer with a list of new enhancements. Known as a ground-breaking league that focuses on innovation, BIG3 implemented notable rules during its 2019 season, which included lowering the minimum age of athletes from 27 to 22, opening the league to all nonprofessional and professional athletes that want to try out. A first of its kind “Bring the Fire” rule allows teams one challenge per half resulting in an in-game one-on-one.
