League Battle is a multiplayer mode in Splatoon 2. It replaces Splatoon's Squad Battles as an option for co-operative ranked play.

League Battles feature the same game modes as Ranked Battles, namely Splat Zones, Tower Control, Rainmaker, and Clam Blitz. The stages and modes for League Battles rotate every two hours and feature a different mode and stages. The stages selected for League Battles are not dependent on the stages in the monthly Ranked rotation.

For two hours, players team up in a group of two, called a pair, or four, called a squad, and compete with other groups to earn as many points as possible. At the end of the two hours, results are shown in a ranking system called League Power that acts the same as Splatfest Power or the Rank X system. Players get their initial League Power based on their performance in the first seven matches. Players must be Rank B- in Ranked Battles or higher to participate in League Battles. Unlike Squad Battles, a player's rank does not change, regardless of what rank they are.[1]

Pairs are grouped up with other pairs, with two pairs on a team chosen at random. Squads play against another squad.

Groups that rank high enough will recieve commemorative medals, either League Battle Gold Medal Icon.png Gold Medals, League Battle Silver Medal Icon.png Silver Medals, or League Battle Bronze Medal Icon.png Bronze Medals.
