ESL and Ubisoft® confirmed the calendar for the first-ever Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® ESL Premiership season starting with an open online qualifier on Saturday 16th December on Xbox One.
Following the success of the Go4UK cups throughout 2017, ESL and Ubisoft announced the addition of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six to the ESL Premiership programme at EGX, sitting alongside the official UK national leagues for Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Hearthstone.
The top four teams from the Go4UK cup finals, taking place on 9th December, will automatically qualify for the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six ESL Premiership group stage. The other four places will be decided through an open online one-day qualifier taking place on Saturday 16th December and entered via the following link: http://esl.pm/premqualifier. The qualifier will be played through the ESL app on Xbox One and there are no limits to the number of teams that can be entered.
The Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six ESL Premiership kicks off on 14th January, with the eight qualifying teams split into two groups with matches streamed every Sunday. The finals will be held on 10th and 11th March with teams competing for their share of £10,500 prize pool.
All participants who compete in the open qualifier will receive a free Weekly Gold cup participation charm from ESL. Players can redeem it on https://rainbow6.ubisoft.com/siege/en-gb/ulc-redeem, choosing the Xbox One platform.
