Here comes the third year of the CSL Fighting Game Division! With our third season coming up, we’re looking forward to another great year working across North America to see the best of the collegiate world compete. Many thanks goes out to club leaders, TOs, campus gaming ambassadors, and players for giving us feedback throughout the year and your continued support.
We're also incredibly excited to announce that registration is FREE this year for the circuit; no team fees means whether you’re new or a seasoned competitor, there is no barrier to join!
With a full school year to complete the circuit(as opposed to 1 semester due to the timing of Smash Ultimate’s release in our previous season), we will now have Locals lead into Regionals and then Divisionals into Nationals like in Season 1. More opportunities to qualify and compete!
The Circuit will begin in October with 19 local qualifiers across North America. The top 2 of each will advance to Regionals. The winners of those events will advance to Divisionals. There will be four Divisional tournaments and the winner of each will advance to Nationals.
In addition to travel support between Locals and Divisionals, we have a $15,000 prize pool for up for grabs for both Melee & Ultimate ($30,000 total)!
Entry Fee (for local qualifiers): FREE
