Following a successful first season of ESL Premiership for Rainbow Six Siege with a sold out live final in Studio One in Leicester, ESL UK is proud to be bringing back Rainbow Six Siege for another season filled with semi-professional competition.
The open qualifiers for the Spring Season 2019 will take place on January 16 and 19, and will see the top two UK and Irish teams from each qualifier advancing through with the chance to compete for the prize pool of £10,500. Joining them will be the four returning finalists from the 2018 Winter Season.
Last year was a huge year for the UK and IRE Premiership, with an overall £81,500 prize pool in three seasons across all competitive titles including CS:GO, League of Legends, Hearthstone, and Rainbow Six Siege. The most recent Rainbow Six Siege live final on 8th December 2018 sold out within three days.
The event was packed with enthusiastic members of the Rainbow Six Siege community who brought an unforgettable amount of passion to the event and featured top tier players from G2 such as Niclas “Pengu” Mouritzen on the desk.
The upcoming season of Rainbow Six Siege will bring an even higher level of competition to the UK and Ireland, and continue to bring the community together by creating a place for them to meet in person in different parts of the country.
Tom “TankNinjaz” Connelly of Unnamed, a finalist team from the most recent Winter season is looking forward to the next season to get underway, ”We’re all excited for the return of Premiership for another season. It’s great for the UK scene and is going to make for more amazing games after a really competitive finals!”.
More information will follow shortly about the location and ticketing for the first touring Rainbow Six Siege PC Spring on the Premiership website and social media.
