The Hearthstone® Collegiate National Championship—part of the Tespa Competitive Series—will get underway early in 2017 with over $160,000 in scholarship prizing, legendary gear, and opportunities to organize your own Fireside Gatherings!
Registration is open now and closes at 10 a.m. PST on Tuesday, January 24, so gather your friends, form your team, and prepare your best decks!
Your school can field as many teams of 3 as want to participate and compete in one match each week during the regular season, and we encourage you to unite your Hearthstone community on campus by designating a coordinator.
Proceedings are scheduled to get underway on Monday, January 30. Thanks to our partnership with Twitch for this program select matches livestreamed at twitch.tv/playhearthstone. When the top 64 teams advance to the championship bracket in early April, all of the 190-plus eligible players still competing will qualify for scholarship prizing. Shortly thereafter, when only the best 8 teams remain, they’ll compete in the National Championship Finals for their share of the prize pool, which is detailed below:
Prize pool and breakdown are:
- 1st - $10,000 per player / $30,000 team
- 2nd - $6,000 per player / $18,000 team
- 3rd – 4th: $3,000 per player / $9,000 team
- 5th- 8th: $1,600 per player / $4,800 team
- 9th – 16th: $750 per player / $2,250 team
- 17th – 64th: $400 per player / $1,200 team

You will need to be part of a complete team of three players, and must be ready to play on time for the first four rounds. Teams that are not available to play at the schedule time will be dropped from the tournament and will not be eligible for the card back.
