In August, renowned esports platform FACEIT introduced its Pro League circuit for Rainbow Six Siege. FACEIT Pro League (FPL) launched first in Europe only, but now they will be expanding their partnership with Ubisoft and launch in North America.
This year, FACEIT took over the Rainbow Six Esports organization duties from ESL for all the major regions. And now, they will be introducing a path to pro for all aspiring up-and-coming players in the PC North American Siege community.
According to the FACEIT blog, FPL NA will launch with the best professional players from the North American region with $5,000 monthly on the line. Professional Players will be able to stream their matches, bringing the community inside the server to observe their actions first-hand, listen to their voice comms in real-time and acquire a unique insight on how the best compete.
What is FPL?
FPL is a community of top professional and up-and-coming players who play against each other in a highly competitive and 24/7 moderated solo-queue environment. The mission of FPL is to provide an excellent playing experience for professional players and to help discover, develop and promote new talents within the Esports Rainbow Six Siege scene.
FPL uses an open qualification system, where all players in the community are able to qualify through a path to pro format. Start your journey, top the standings, reach the FPL, and get to show your skills to the professional players and Siege community, every single day.
