Ubisoft Announces New North American League for Rainbow Six Esports

Posted in Commentary with tags on May 4, 2020 by itnerd

Today Ubisoft® announced details around the new North American League for Rainbow Six® Esports scheduled to debut in late June 2020. The Rainbow Six North American League will feature two regional Divisions – the United States and Canada – as well as a revamped path-to-pro tier designed to foster the best up-and-coming teams in both territories. The US Division will feature eight pro team organizations competing in an offline league based in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

For the first time in Rainbow Six Esports history, Canada will join the global competition with its own Canada Division, a league consisting of four teams competing online in lockstep with the US Division tournament schedule. To promote a robust semi-pro ecosystem for all aspirational players, Rainbow Six Esports North America will also include the Challenger League, an accessible online league consisting of eight teams per region, playing for a chance to break into the pro tier each season. 

The introduction of the US Division and Canada Division, alongside updates to the Challenger League in North America, as part of the new regionalized ecosystem, represents the biggest evolution for the competitive Rainbow Six Esports landscape in its four-year history. All three programs make-up a competitive ecosystem that is focused on the long-term health and stability of Rainbow Six Esports in the region. Additional key partnerships for the next chapter of North American Rainbow Six Esports include Acer Predator, and Corsair.

Given current health and safety concerns for our players and employees as well as following guidelines from the state of Nevada, the US Division launch date, competition for Stage 1 of the 2020 Season will take place online. As soon as the situation permits, we will assess any available opportunity to continue our offline Las Vegas program.

2020 Season – US Division Teams:

  • Spacestation Gaming
  • TSM
  • DarkZero Esports
  • Tempo Storm
  • eUnited
  • Oxygen Esports
  • Disrupt Gaming
  • Susquehanna Soniqs
