Two Ubisoft Esport Leagues Are Combining to Create a New League
Ubisoft has announced a new league for one of their popular game, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
The two former leagues, UK Ireland Nationals (UKIN) and Nordic Championship esports leagues have been combined to create Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Northern Premier League. The new league will state that it will be highly competitive. It also states that it will still be at work in both UK, Ireland, and Nordic scenes, with a prize pool of €25,000.
Mark Slaughter, UK Marketing Director, Ubisoft stated on the new move, “We’re excited to bring this new Rainbow Six Siege esports competition for our UK, Ireland, and Nordic players,” This new tier will help further develop both local scenes from grassroots through to the Northern Premier League and ultimately to the European Challenger League, giving our players and teams more opportunities to participate and to win.”
Peter Weile, Nordic Managing Director at Ubisoft, also stated, “Rainbow Six Siege has steadily become one of the most popular esports games in the world and the new Northern Premier League will expose this wonderful title to even more people. The future is extremely exciting for Rainbow Six Siege.”
So far, Northern Premier League will have 10 teams that will compete from April 19, 2022, to the end of August 2022. There will be two broadcasts per week, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, where the ten teams will compete for the top two spots, which will enter them into slots for European Challenger League, which is the challenging competition that draws all the top teams from across Europe to get promoted into the European League, the top tier league for Rainbow Six Siege in Europe.
For more information on this new league, it can be found on the new Northern Premier League website.
