The Esports Club is set to host a Rainbow Six Siege tournament, which will be one of the biggest online events in the South Asian region. The tournament is officially supported by Ubisoft and will boast a prize pool of INR 10,00,000.
The tournament titled as the TEC WD Black R6 Pro League is open to gamers from India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka only. The league will be split into 5 seasons, each lasting for three weeks and featuring a prize pool of INR 200,000. This prize pool will then be shared among the different divisions of the league.
After the first qualifying stage, the top 24 teams will be divided into 3 Divisions. Each division will be competing for its own independent prize pool, with Division 1 being the top-most level and having the highest share of the prize money.
At the end of every season, the top 3 teams from each division will be promoted into the next division with the bottom 3 teams getting relegated. And in Division 3, the bottom three teams will be eliminated from the league at the end of a season. A new open qualifier will then allow three new teams to enter the league through Division 3.
Registration for TEC Pro League is now live and will be open until October 2nd, 2020. So head over to their website and sign up for the tournament now.
Ishaan Arya, Co-Founder & Head of Business Development, The Esports Club, said (via: Afkgaming), “We’ve always felt strongly about Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and we’re happy to have played a part in helping consolidate the esports ecosystem in the region. With the introduction of the TEC Pro League we want to further support Rainbow Six esports in the region through a larger prize pool and help acclimatize teams to a high-stakes competitive environment they’re going to see on the international stage over the next year.
