The first-ever Gateway Legends Collegiate Invitational esports tournament is scheduled to take place at the BallPark Village bar in St. Louis. The three-day event will run from July 2nd to July 4th.
The series will feature some of the top college esports teams in the country going head-to-head. This League of Legends tournament is expected to be the U.S.’s first major in-person collegiate gaming event of 2021.
“Through this event, we hope that the community will learn more about the opportunities esports can provide students in high school and at the collegiate level in a non-traditional sport,” said Bridgette Horack, a Karma Ambassador for Riot Games. “We’re looking forward to the Gateway Legends Collegiate Invitational and wish all the players the best of luck out on the Rift.”
The round-robin tournament will feature a $10K prize pool. Celebrity streamers, esports panelists, and live music are also expected to be featured during the event.
