Ubisoft Announces North American Rainbow Six League

Next month, get ready. The games are about to begin in North America.

Just yesterday, top gaming company Ubisoft announced the creation of a brand new American League for their popular title Rainbow Six Siege.

This new league is set to start up at the very end of late June 2020. Rainbow Six North American League will feature two major league divisions with a four-team Canadian league and an eight-team United States league.

With these 12 professional teams comes a brand new completely revamped minor league system. This has been seen as an effort to develop the continent's next big stars, helping to harvest a new generation of professional gamers. Considering who wins in the minors, progress through the ranks will grant players access to enter in either the U.S. or Canada divisions.

Overall, the U.S. and Canada divisions will have eight minor league teams apiece. This is to create an overall landscape that will have 28 teams competing in the new North American League.

In the US Division, eight pro organizations have been invited to compete in the new offline chapter. They will compete in Las Vegas, Nevada, the entertainment capital of the world.

  • Spacestation Gaming
  • TSM
  • DarkZero Esports
  • eUnited
  • Tempo Storm
  • Susquehanna Soniqs
  • Disrupt Gaming
  • Oxygen Esports

Most notably, returning to pro-Rainbow Six Esports in the US are current world champions Spacestation Gaming. In addition, fan-favorites from the recently transitioned Pro League are TSM, DarkZero Esports, eUnited, and Tempo Storm. New to the pro tier in North America are Susquehanna Soniqs and Disrupt Gaming. Both organizations have contributed to the vibrancy of Rainbow Six Esports in Challenger League. Finally, Oxygen Esports, a new North American organization focused on Rainbow Six Siege as its flagship esports investment, will also be in attendance.

Although Oxygen Esports is new to the scene, their players, consisting of the veterans from the recent Reciprocity roster, have triumphed over more than their share of tough match-ups in the US Division line-up.
