Rainbow Six Siege added to NSE’s British University Esports Championship

National Student Esports (NSE) and Ubisoft UK have announced a partnership to bring Rainbow Six Siege to the British University Esports Championship this spring.

The tournament for university students in the UK will start on February 10th.

Alongside this, NSE and Ubisoft UK announced a caster competition for students. Entrants will compete for the chance to cast the Rainbow Six Siege finals.

The new Rainbow Six tournament joins NSE’s other British University Esports tournaments including League of Legends, CSGO, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Rocket League, Overwatch and FIFA.

These tournaments will culminate in the live final on April 18th where the points accrued from each tournament will be totalled to crown a winning university team.

“We are delighted to officially include Rainbow Six Siege in the British University Esports Championship,” commented Jon Tilbury, executive director at NSE.

“Rainbow Six Siege has grown from strength to strength as an esports title over the last few years and has a popular following in the UK.

“It has always been an ambition of ours to integrate Rainbow Six Siege into the British University Esports Championship and we look forward to working closely with Ubisoft UK to make it a success.”
