Tespa ®


Find your team, sharpen your skills, and dominate the opposition in our Tespa competitive leagues.

Bring your skills to the college stage.

This year, Tespa is proud to announce competitive seasons for six different game titles, spanning the full course of the academic year and offering over $1,000,000 in scholarships and prizing.

New leagues, bigger prizes, and one epic year to compete.

We believe that one of the most important aspects of competition is giving our players a reliable league schedule they can plan around. That’s why starting today, we’re opening registration for all six of our Fall premier and open leagues for all students in the USA and Canada. We’ll be revealing additional details for our Spring leagues in the coming months.

With new leagues, new formats, and more scholarships than ever before, we’re positive this is going to be an incredible year for student competitors. From all of us at Tespa, good luck and have fun!

What are premier and open leagues?

What are premier and open leagues?

Premier leagues are high-stakes competitive programs that offer meaningful scholarships for top teams and competitors at every college. These leagues enforce stricter academic requirements, and are contained within a single season to prevent player fatigue.

Open leagues will be open to all students looking to play, with less stringent academic and time commitment requirements. Open Leagues are a great way to sharpen your skills or simply have fun playing with friends. 

TCS Overwatch
