2023 College League of Legends and VALORANT Season Information Live!
Register your team now through September 21
We’ve heard loud and clear that students, schools, and conferences want more opportunities for high-level League of Legends competition beyond the Season and Championship. Today, we’re announcing and opening registration for the College League of Legends Fall Invitational, with registration open now. We’re trying some new things to differentiate this event from the Season and Championship, and what we learn from this event will inform how we approach non-Season competition in the future.
We know this is a uniquely challenging time for many students, and some of you might not be in ideal circumstances for competition. Participation in this event won’t affect your team’s standing in the 2021 Season, and we’re not tying any prizing or scholarships to this event. Please register to compete only if you’re safely able to do so.
Running from late September to mid-November, the Fall Invitational will culminate in an NA-wide, 32 school, single elimination tournament. Schools will earn spots in the Invitational through qualifying tournaments, one for each College League of Legends regional conference and participating partner conference.
Any eligible school can register one team, but unlike the College League of Legends Season, spots are limited.
For regional conferences (i.e. North, South, East, West), the top 16 schools that register from each conference will be selected to participate in a double elimination qualifying tournament. Schools will be selected based on the ranks of their team members (more below). School registration is open now through September 21.
For participating partner conferences, member schools will compete in conference-specific qualifiers. Participating partner conference schools will be automatically placed in the correct qualifier, and will register as normal. Any member schools who are not participating in a partner conference qualifier are eligible to register in the respective regional conference qualifier, subject to the same selection criteria.
