FACEIT announces HyperX as the first official sponsor of the FACEIT Collegiate League. The partnership will cover the recently announced FACEIT programs in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and VALORANT with a total prize pool of $ 55,000. Together, FACEIT and HyperX will work together to support student teams by providing funding and prizes for tournaments and development programs.
The FACEIT Collegiate League CS: GO, League of Legends and VALORANT tournaments kick off this spring, offering competitive opportunities for students of all levels. This partnership is the latest in a series of collaborations between FACEIT and HyperX, including the FACEIT Global Summit: PUBG Classic, Esports Championship Series (ECS) and FACEIT London Major. As part of the partnership, HyperX and FACEIT will create the "HyperX Collegiate All-Stars", in which the best players competing in the leagues will compete in several events in June 2021.
The Premier League CS: GO boasts a $ 25K prize pool for upper-level players and $ 5K for Contenders, which will follow a ten-week Swiss regular season and then a playoff bracket for the top teams.
As part of the League of Legends Invitational Series, teams from across North America will compete in the State Invitational, where winners from each State and province will progress to the Regional Invitational to compete for the $ 5,000 prize pool. The winner of each Regional Invitational will go to the FACEIT Collegiate Finals with a prize pool of $ 10,000.
The VALORANT Premiere League will also offer top-level players a $ 10,000 prize pool.
In June 2021, HyperX will sponsor the HyperX Collegiate All-Stars to end the college season. The event will allow the community to vote for the best players across all collegiate leagues divided between East and West. Star players will be invited to show matches, skill trials and other exciting events over several weekends, giving the best players across all leagues another chance to showcase their top-notch skill set.
