Introducing the CEA Collegiate Series
In partnership with our title sponsor (Guilded) and incredible support from (Tobi) @ (Shopify), the Corporate Esports Association is proud to announce the Collegiate Series and its premier game, Starcraft II. The Collegiate Series will carry on the spirit of TESPA and offer an all levels outlet of competition for those fighting it out with their academic careers.
The CEA is the spiritual successor of the After Hours Gaming League, giving a platform for professionals to represent their companies in a friendly for-charity competition.
Thanks to incredible support from our partner, Shopify, the CEA is proud to announce that students will compete for $25,000 in scholarships as well as school pride. Integrating with the existing Championship Series, the CEA will be able to offer competitors an opportunity for career growth with industry experts while still in school.
To compete in the CEA Collegiate Series, players must be full time students in good standing with an active school email. Players of all levels are welcome!
The inaugural season will be run as an individual Swiss competition in Best of 5 sets, with the top 16 moving onto a single elimination bracket.
Players will earn points for their school that will go towards a trophy to show off back at their home base, giving all levels of players the ability to contribute for school pride.
