FACEIT Collegiate leagues in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valorant and League of Legends will offer up-and-coming players the chance to compete for their share of $55,000. Registration is open through Nov. 1.

FACEIT Collegiate CS:GO & Valorant

The CS:GO league will feature two divisions. The Premier level will feature the top-competing teams, and Contenders will have a more casual atmosphere. Over 10 weeks beginning March 1, the regular season will be played out in a Swiss format. That will lead to a single-elimination playoff bracket. Registration costs $125 per Premier League team and $75 per Contenders League team. The prize pool offers $30,000.

Things will work the exact same way in Valorant with the significant difference of a $10,000 prize pool.

FACEIT Collegiate League of Legends

The League of Legends league will feature weekly tournaments in three stages: the qualifier stage, the regional stage and the finals. Up to eight tournaments will be held each weekend — approximately two per region — and each tournament will be capped at 16 teams.

Teams from the qualifiers will be seeded randomly into four regional single-elimination tournaments in February and March. The top four teams from each regional tournament will qualify for finals, themselves a single-elimination bracket played out over two days. Teams in the finals will be seeded according to performance in the regional stage.

The League of Legends prize pool is set at $15,000.
