Starting in March 2023, the Rainbow Six Esports Global Circuit will be comprised of the following nine regions: Europe, North America, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, Hispanic Latin America, Asia, Oceania, and MENA.

Ubisoft has just launched the full Esports circuit schedule for its most competitive  shooter , Rainbow Six Siege . The season will run from March through the following February and will be structured as follows: 

•           March to May: Stage 1, concluded by an extended Six Major in May

•           June to August: Off-Season

•           September to November: Stage 2, concluded by an extended Six Major in November

•           December to February: Off-Season

•           February: Six Invitational

During each Stage, the nine regions will run their independent regional programs in parallel. The pre-defined Off-Seasons, in addition to creating room for third-party tournaments, will give more time for teams to regroup, rest and prepare for the next Stage.

The entire competitive season will be a race to score points to qualify for the Six Invitational, the peak of the competitive year that gathers the 20 best teams every season. The winners will be crowned Rainbow Six Siege’s World Champions and will get to lift the coveted Sledge Hammer.

Ubisoft is delighted to announce a historical multi-year partnership with BLAST across the entire Rainbow Six Esports Global Circuit, from regional programs to international events. 

BLAST will bring the best of its industry-leading technology, ‘fan-first’ production values and extensive tournament organiser experience to create a circuit engaging for all members of the Siege community, whether fans, professional players and aspiring pros, organisations, talent or brands looking to join in.

Stage 1 & 2: Regional Programs 

Gateway to qualify for the Six Major at the end of each Stage, the regional programs will embrace a hybrid competitive approach that combines both closed and open components.

Certain regions will also run closed leagues where fans will be able to enjoy the top teams competing at the highest level of Siege Esports. Recognizing the efforts and investments that are required from organizations to grow and sustain high-performing rosters, while offering exciting content for their fans, the closed leagues will contribute to creating programs where organisations can fully thrive.

Combined, the closed leagues and Six Major open qualifiers will together determine which teams qualify for the Six Major at the end of each stage.

Today, Ubisoft confirmed that the following regions will have closed leagues running in parallel with their open qualifiers: 

•           Europe: closed league with up to 10 teams. 

•           North America: closed league with up to 10 teams.

•           Brazil: closed league with up to 10 teams.

•           Japan: closed league with up to 10 teams.

•           South Korea: closed league with up to 8 teams.

•           Hispanic Latin America: closed league with up to 8 teams.

With 9 regions represented in the event and a number of teams coming directly from regional qualifiers, the Six Major is being extended and will now feature an additional phase before the Group Stage and Playoffs.
