As Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Esports approaches the upcoming launch of the European League – as part of its new regionalized ecosystem Ubisoft announced the Rainbow Six European Open Clash. The Rainbow Six European Open Clash is an online hybrid competitive tournament organized in partnership with FACEIT, where 16 European teams, both professional and amateur, will compete for a 50 000€ prize pool which will be donated in full to Doctors Without Borders. Embracing Ubisoft’s DNA, the Rainbow Six Esports ecosystem stays close to our communities with a new tournament where our European fans, along with the rest of the Rainbow Six Siege family, will have the opportunity to cheer for their favourite European teams, whether pro or amateur.
The online tournament will kick-off with 2 Community Cups running respectively on:
- 16th & 17th May: register here. Registrations will be open until 16th May at 12:55PM BST
- 23rd & 24th May: register here. Registrations will be open until 23rd May at 12:55PM BST
The top 3 teams from each Community Cup will then join the 10 professional European teams from the upcoming Rainbow Six 2020 European League for the following phase. Pros and amateurs will face off in 3-day long playoffs to determine the 4 teams that will make it to the Grand Finale of the European Open Clash on 7th June. The playoffs and Grand Finale will be broadcasted live on Twitch and YouTube:
- Playoffs: on 30th, 31st May and 6th June, starting at 1PM BST.
- Semi Finals and Grand Finale: on 7th June starting at 2PM BST.
In addition to the tournament’s charity prize pool, viewers will be able to donate to Doctors Without Borders through all Rainbow Six European Open Clash streams.
For fans tuning in on Twitch, random Twitch Drops will be activated on all Rainbow Six European Open Clash streams. 3 items from the Doc bundle (the Complexity headgear, the Convergence weapon skin and the Optimization uniform) as well as the Siege Pro League charm will be included in the Twitch Drops and delivered the day following the drop.
