what is csl?


Collegiate Starleague is the world’s first collegiate gaming organization. We have been hosting collegiate competitions since 2009 and have grown to over 900 universities and 30,000 players actively competing in our league. We now run leagues across multiple titles and platforms and have awarded over $400,000 in scholarships to deserving college gamers.

Our Story


CSL began as a StarCraft: Brood War intercollegiate tournament with 25 schools participating. Within 2 years, over 140 schools were registered to play as StarCraft II launched in 2010. CSL has since added games like League of Legends, Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Vainglory to the tournament circuit.

Live finals events have been held all across the continent, both in exclusive spaces and as a part of events like MLG Anaheim and Dreamhack Austin. We also support campus gaming events and showcase new initiatives at events like PAX and Twitch Con. History is still being written, so become a part of CSL today!
