Collegiate StarLeague Announces 2020-2021 Esports Season
The Collegiate StarLeague (CSL) made a huge announcement today, including the impending arrival of the 2020-2021 esports season. Those who want to register can do so as of today, until Sept. 27. There are more offerings from the CSL than ever before. From CSL Women’s League, CSL Esports, and much more.
Collegiate Esports Is Back!
The 2021 season marks the 12th year of CSL bringing quality esports to the world, and they have no intention of stopping now. As the world’s largest collegiate esports organization, they were sad to cancel the initial 2020-2021 season. COVID-19 may have slowed things down temporarily, but esports is coming back, without health and safety risks. That means it’s time to register!
After all, over 1,800 colleges and universities in North America take part in the 2021 esports season of Collegiate StarLeague. What games will be competed in this year? League of Legends, Valorant, CSGO, Dota 2, Rocket League, Smash Ultimate, and Fortnite. That’s not even the whole list, either! There’s more to compete in potentially, and that’s exciting.
“The precautions many schools and college sports programs are taking this season, though necessary, have greatly affected the opportunities for college sports fans to enjoy and root for their favorite schools and teams,” said Wim Stocks, CEO of the CSL. “We at CSL recognize the key role that collegiate-level esports will play this season to offer replacement programming.
Stocks added, “We are excited to bring competitive play for schools, colleges, universities in the US and Canada in an effort to give enthusiasts an opportunity to cheer for their favorite college teams and players, all while maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all involved. Also, our expanded set of offerings this year, including women’s leagues, intra-murals and intra-collegiate leagues, esports developmental services for colleges and more will deliver an inclusive, more accessible, more diverse basis for play, competition and engagement for our member schools and communities.”
We also recently announced one of their new offerings to help with esports support at the college level, CSL Esports Business. It’s a great way to help schools get deeper into esports’ exciting world. As far as the 2021 season goes, there is over $100,000 in scholarship and prize money and bragging rights of being the best. The action is going to be on their Twitch, so don’t miss out. The CSL website will have all the information you need about new leagues, events, and more.
