Ubisoft announced Ubisoft Collegiate Esports, their first ever proprietary collegiate esports league, premiering with Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, that will kick off in July 2020. The new league will launch in partnership with FACEIT, the world’s leading platform for competitive online gaming, who will operate the program as part of the new North American ecosystem. CORSAIR will serve as the premiere sponsor of the league. Additional sponsors include Origin PC, a subsidiary of CORSAIR.
The program will feature a user-friendly online platform allowing registered school clubs (no online schools) to register themselves and begin competing in a variety of local and cross-continent programs.
Clubs must consist of registered, full-time students and will be able to:
- Host intramural matches
- Host viewing parties and live events
- Manage club members and their teams
- Manage matches and results
- Request prizing
In addition to the online platform, schools will be eligible to nominate one team (per school) to participate in the Rainbow Six Collegiate championship – our premier league for Rainbow Six. All contending schools will face off for a chance to earn a $30K 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.
Ubisoft is taking exceptional pride in being able to offer unique esports programs to players of all skill levels. The collegiate program is our chance to get involved with the college community and build a program that focuses on professionalism, fair play, and community growth.
