Alienware AGA USA Tournament

The American Collegiate Esports League, iGames, and Intel are pleased to invite your esports club to enter your best League of Legends team into the Alienware AGA North America Tournament presented by Intel! This online, double-elimination tournament has a $5,000 cash prize pool PLUS the top 2 teams will win a trip to Las Vegas to compete in the AGA USA Championship with a cash prize pool of $15,000! We are only seeking established League of Legends esports Club teams to participate in this invitational tournament. 

Team rosters may consist of 6 players; 5 plus an alternate.  The team members must be able to commit to all tournament dates (providing they continue to advance) as well as travel to Las Vegas November 30-December 2, 2018 should they be one of the top 2 teams. Participating clubs may identify their top team to enter into the tournament through your own method such as hosting a qualifier or inviting the top team from a previous competition you hosted.  We will select 16 clubs to receive a LAN party kit so you can host an Alienware and Intel sponsored gathering for your club members.  Clubs need to be confident they can get a minimum of 50 attendees for their LAN party.  LAN parties must be held between the dates of 9/28-11/11.

Note: All participating teams have been selected. There will be no more entries into the tournament.
