Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is taking a evolutionary step in eSports with its new U.S. Nationals program. The program will not only feature the best players of the U.S., but have a prize pool of $50,000. Whoever becomes the winning team in the national competition will also earn the title of Team USA.
Sign ups for the Rainbow Six Siege competition are now open on the official ESL registration page, with the open qualifiers beginning on July 14, giving all U.S. teams a chance to fight for the Team USA title. The eSports program will lead to a live National Finals in December, where eight teams will compete against each other.
These eight teams will be divided evenly into Eastern and Western Conferences, with the top four teams from each conference getting an invitation to travel to the live finals. These teams will be determined by their placements from each of the three Stage Finals.
The season consists of five parts, which includes the first three stages for each conference, a Wild Card tournament for both conferences, and the finals.
Beginning on July 20, the top two placing teams from each conference will face off against each other in a Twitch livestream. Fans can watch the live action on the official Tom Clancy’s Rainbow SixSiegeTwitch channel.
