Ubisoft recently announced that the UK Ireland Nationals (UKIN) and Nordic Championship esports leagues will combine to create the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Northern Premier League. This new revamped league will gather the best players and teams from both UKIN and Nordic local scenes to compete in a new competition with a $27,898 prize pool.
“We’re excited to bring this new Rainbow Six Siege esports competition for our UK, Ireland, and Nordic players,” said Mark Slaughter, UK Marketing Director at Ubisoft. “This new tier will help further develop both local scenes from grassroots through to the Northern Premier League and ultimately to the European Challenger League, giving our players and teams more opportunities to participate and to win.”
The Northern Premier League will have ten teams compete across nine weeks from April 19th to the end of August 2022. Each week there will be two days of broadcast: Tuesdays and Wednesdays. At the end of the Northern Premier League season, the top two teams will qualify for the European Challenger League, where teams from across Europe compete to be promoted to the European League, the highest level of competitive Rainbow Six Siege in the region. The middle four teams will retain their place in the Northern Premier League, while the seventh and eighth positions enter relegation playoffs and the bottom two will be automatically relegated to their respective local league.
At a grassroots level the existing UKIN 2nd Division will rebrand as UKIN and, along with the Nordic Championship, will act as feeder leagues to the Northern Premier League. Ubisoft said more details will be shared about these leagues soon.
