Following the success of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate online tournament, The Box; Juan "Hungrybox" Debiedma and Team Liquid return with an expanded offering.
The Box has now split into two separate events, The Juice Box and The Lunchbox. The former is a weekly tournament series that's open to only competitors in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Featuring a winner-takes-all $100 prize, all sets will be best-of-three matches, except for the top 8 which adopts a best-of-five instead. The registration cap was reached in just 20 minutes of the tournament’s announcement, with the event launch set for June 3, 3 pm PT. Tournament rules and internet requirements can be found on the Smash.gg page here.

The Lunchbox, on the other hand, is a subscriber-only tournament that will be held at the end of each month. It’s unclear whether participants are Hungrybox or Team Liquid subscribers. They could also be both. Whatever the case, the prize pool is expected to be much higher due to the closed nature and monthly occurrence.
Unlike The Box, it looks like NFL running back Le’Veon Bell of the New York Jets will not be partnering with Hungrybox and Team Liquid this time.
