The competition will run from 9 – 21 May.
TikTok and Collegiate StarLeague, North America’s largest collegiate esports league, have announced the TikTok Cup, an esports event set to occur this coming May.
Entrants will be able to compete for $60,000 across four titles: Fortnite, League of Legends, Rocket League and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The prize money is intended to help support the education expenses of the winners.
According to the TikTok Cup’s official website, the tournament is open to those who are “enrolled at an accredited university or college in the US”. Those wishing to compete must do so in a team made up of “students enrolled at the same school”.
We’re thrilled to partner with @TikTok_US to bring the first-ever TikTok Cup for college gamers. Register for free and compete for over $60,000 in prizing.
