College Students


We challenge your school to rally the best Overwatch players on campus to participate in our twelve-week competition: the 2018-2019 Overwatch Collegiate Championship: Preseason! This Preseason tournament will affect the schedules and standings for the rest of the Season that will take place in spring of 2019. Multiple teams will be allowed to represent a school for this tournament.

Schedule and Format

Teams can choose to opt-in to two weekly matches with the default time taking place on Sunday. Teams will play against opponents of similar skill level as determined by a Preseason leaderboard. The leaderboard’s results will then contribute to the initial standings of the Overwatch Collegiate Championship's Regular Season in the Spring. To view a more detailed schedule of the event, visit the schedule tab here.


Once you’ve registered an account on Compete and verified your Student Status, you can either create a new team, or join any open team from your school.

Team Registration does not close, but there will be deadline periods each week during the Preseason. Teams can add new players and edit their lineup whenever except during roster locking periods.


Participation Prizing

Participation Prizing: Team Captains with teams that complete at least ten matches will receive ten (10) Tespa Overwatch Lanyards valued at $2.00 ARV.

The results of the Preseason’s leaderboard will also affect the standings of the Spring tournament, which will have scholarship prizing.
