A new opportunity for Tespa players is coming this spring.

Students competing in Tespa’s spring competitive leagues will have a chance to represent their schools live thanks to a new collaboration between Tespa and ESPN!

We are excited to team up with ESPN to host the Collegiate Esports Championship. Schools from across the U.S. and Canada will compete live in Overwatch, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and StarCraft II at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, from May 10–12. The Collegiate Esports Championship will be the first time Blizzard hosts four collegiate championships under one roof.

The top teams from each of the four Tespa tournaments will be invited to attend the Collegiate Esports Championship to compete for scholarship prizing and the title in each game. Teams will square off in live competition to see who will emerge as the best in college esports.

Tickets to the event can be purchased here. We'll be announcing Tespa member discounts on tickets at a later date. In the meantime, stay tuned to our Twitch and Twitter for all the qualifying action!
