General Information

CSL is an intercollegiate gaming league open to all accredited colleges and universities in North America. We will be running a league with weekly matches for XBOX and PS4. During the regular season, teams will play Best of One's in round robin conferences using NFL club teams through play-a-friend (Online - Head to Head), with the top teams advancing to a Best-of-Three single-elimination playoff bracket.

Each player will need to set up their own “team” under their university; for all intents and purposes, each team is ONLY one individual player, but for rules and website logistics, they will be referred to as “teams”.

Tips for New Players (Teams)

Running a CSL team can be daunting, fun, or both! Here are some tips that we've gathered over the years to make the best of your experience:

1. Read the rules

Carefully. Rules are very important for creating a smooth experience!

2. Know that not all players are flexible

The default time for CSL matches is set for Saturday 12:00pm Pacific. Most of the time our teams are friendly and can reschedule, but you may run up against a team that also has other obligations and cannot. Sign your team up for this league knowing that you will have to set aside time on Saturday afternoons
