Rainbow Six Tourney is In Full Swing
Presented by Ubisoft Canada and powered by Northern Arena, the Rainbow Six Canadian Nationals started last month and there is some decent cash on the line.
The competition consists of two seasons, with live finals taking place in Montreal and Toronto. Each season, participating Canadian teams will compete for a $15,000 CAD prize pool.
41 Canadian teams registered for the R6CN Season 1 Open Qualifiers, but only the top eight teams advanced to the Online Circuit. These Canadian teams are now competing every weekend in July, vying for a spot in the Live Final and a chance to win $15,000!
So how does it all play out? Well, each season will begin with a two-day Open Qualifier, where teams (made up of all Canadian players) will compete for their chance at a spot to compete in the Canadian league. Once league play begins, each season will consist of eight days of matches spanning four weekends. The tournament will follow a round robin format, and rankings will be determined on a point-based system.
Season One Open Qualifiers took place on June 23-24, with online league play happening each weekend in July. Season Two Open Qualifiers will take place on September 22-23, with online league play happening over every weekend in October.
At the end of each season, the two top-ranked teams will move on to a live Grand Final in Montreal (Season One: August 4) and Toronto (Season Two: November 3). The winning team from season 2 will become the Year 1 national champion!
Additional details regarding spectator opportunities for the Grand Finals will be released closer to each final, and fans are encouraged to follow Northern Arena and Ubisoft Canada on social media for real-time updates.
