Fall 2020 Season Wrap Up

The Fall 2020 competitive season is coming to an exciting conclusion! This season’s premier esports tournaments included hundreds of teams from North America competing in Overwatch and Rocket League. In Overwatch, the High School Scholastic Tournament was geared towards seasoned players and highly competitive teams, with the Community Play-In Tournament for newer teams and Clubs. With Rocket League, we hosted our first ever tournament with the title, which was met with great excitement after moving free-to-play this past fall. 

Just before the winter holidays, we wrapped 21 brackets, identifying the first place teams who will be advancing for our final events this February 2021. We are so proud of all participants across North America who have given their all in the competition, including the students, general managers, and parents who have supported and cheered on their team or teams in their district, and everyone else who has been a part of this wonderful community! 

Hearty congratulations to these teams that won their divisions and are moving into the finals!
