Ever dreamt of playing League on the big stage? Picture it: your name in lights, the roar of the crowd as you push relentlessly towards the Nexus to deliver that crushing final blow. Your foe, head in hands, devastated.
Well dream no more, we have partnered with the High School Esports League (HSEL), the University of Queensland (UQ) and the University of Queensland Union (UQU) to bring League of Legends into High Schools across Australia and New Zealand in the 2019 High School LoL Championships!
This year saw students across Oceania representing their school to take home the title of Oceania’s Champion High School League of Legends Team, the finals for which were broadcast live from the OPL studio in Sydney.
Next year, that dream can be fulfilled as the championship culminates in a live final taking place on-stage at the Melbourne Esports Open (MEO). It could be you up there. Will we see a rematch between this years Champions – Rangitoto College from New Zealand and the challengers – Willetton Senior High School, or will your school be able to take the mantle?
Esports Lead for Riot Games Oceania, Chris Schubert, said “We are extremely excited to partner with HSEL, UQ and UQU to bring the ultimate competitive esports experience to high school students, giving them a way to develop character, and proudly represent their school on the big stage. Our partners bring amazing passion, ideas and support to help us provide opportunities for students across the region and we are excited to see the program continue to grow.”
The tournament will kick off in March 2019, so grab your mates, rally your teachers and keep your eyes peeled on oce.leaguehighschool.com for more information on how to sign up in your region!
