National Student Esports (NSE) and Ubisoft UK today announced a partnership to officially bring Rainbow Six Siege to the British University Esports Championship this Spring. The tournament will start on 10th February.

“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.”

The British University Esports Championship consists of seven video game tournaments played across a season in which university teams compete to earn points. For the Spring Championship, all seven tournaments will culminate in the live Final on 18th April where the points accrued from each tournament will be totalled to crown a winning university team.

We’re really excited to be partnering with NSE for the British University Esports Championship,” said Chris Place, Head of Brand and Media, Ubisoft UK. “We understand the importance of the UK grassroots community and are looking forward to welcoming a whole new generation of players into the Rainbow Six competitive esports scene.”

Alongside the tournament, NSE and Ubisoft UK announced a caster competition for students. Entrants will compete for the chance to cast the Rainbow Six Siege Finals at the British University Esports Championship Spring Final alongside a professional caster. More details on the competition will be announced at a later date.

Signups for the Rainbow Six Siege Spring Tournament and the Spring Championship are now open. University Students can register via the NSE website at NSE.gg
