We are excited to announce the 2019 Spring Varsity Division – part of the 2019 Spring Hearthstone Collegiate Championship!
In order to create a clear distinction between the Varsity and Open Divisions of our tournament, we are requiring that all teams represent esports programs that compete at the club sport or varsity level at their college or university. Schools may select one team to represent them within the varsity division.
The tournament will consist of regional round-robin groups. Top teams will advance to compete in the Varsity Division Championship. The top 4 teams in the Varsity Division will also be placed into the Championship Bracket where they will face off against teams from the Open Division later in the season for the chance to win scholarship prizing.
We will be providing schools with a list of default match times for their matches. However, due to the nature of round robin, schools are able to move their match times as well as collaborate on match events with Tespa approval.
All times related to this tournament are given in Pacific Time (written as PT or PST/PDT)
