As psoted by Drysc on the official World of Warcraft Forum the Arena Season 2 ha been delayed 1 week and will start on the 19th of June. The Reason was the introduction of a new patch.
As we mentioned in our initial announcement of the second arena season, the start of the next season is planned to coincide with the release of a small patch. Due to additional development time and testing needed we will be delaying the scheduled release of the patch, and thus the start of Arena Season 2 by one week, to June 19. This current schedule is of course subject to change as well.
Also, don't forget that team ratings will be reset to the default 1500 with the start of the new season, allowing all teams to once again compete for top honors with a fresh start. – Drysc
