Spring 2019 Varsity Registration

We are excited to announce the 2019 Spring Varsity Division – part of the 2019 Spring Hearthstone Collegiate Championships!

Registration for the Varsity Division will be open until October 24, 2018.

We listened to player feedback and have made a few big changes to the division.

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. Have any questions about eligibility? Email varsity@tespa.org.

We are opening registration and announcing this division far in advance so schools have time to prepare the best possible teams. Your school does not need to have its final roster locked in by the deadline, but all colleges and universities that wish to compete must complete the registration process by the deadline on October 24.

The tournament will consist of regional round-robin groups. Top teams will advance to compete in the National Varsity Championships. After registration ends, we will provide schools with all regional groups.

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.

If you believe your school qualifies for this program, have a point of contact in your school's esports administration reach out to varsity@tespa.org to begin registration. Please subject line the email “HS Varsity Division: [School Name]”.
