Ubisoft unveils the brand new Collegiate ESports League with prize incentives

Getting focused on Rainbow Six.

Full-time college students with big ESports aspirations will soon have a chance to win $30,000 playing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. The Collegiate launch is with FACEIT, which is the world’s leading platform for competitive online gaming. Additional sponsors include Origin PC, a subsidiary of CORSAIR. Colleges across North America will now have a way to register teams and compete in casual games and the championship tournament. Registered colleges will be able to host intramural matches, viewing parties, live events, manage, matches, results, club members and their teams, as well as request prizing. Online-only colleges, however, are omitted from registration.

Schools will be eligible to nominate one team to participate in the Rainbow Six Collegiate championship. All contending schools will then face off for a chance to earn a $30,000 prize pool and additional hardware prizes, including a cutting-edge Origin PC and CORSAIR peripherals. The pre-season will begin in October 2020, while the full season will begin in January 2021.

Players new to Rainbow Six Siege shouldn’t worry about their skill level when registering their teams, though, as the Collegiate ESports League is open to all skill levels. Above all, the program is designed to create a fun, professionalism, fair play, and community growth.
