Support for the local Esports scene just keeps on growing with Riot Games today announcing the Oceanic University Championship to take place throughout August.
The Oceanic University Championship is a League of Legends tournament that will pit representatives from all Australian states and territories plus New Zealand against each other for a share of some pretty neat prizes.
The tournament begins with a round robin to decide which University will represent each state/territory/country before making the victors duke it out in a group stage to find the top two Oceanic teams. The team that finishes the top of each group will be flown to Riot HQ in Sydney to compete in a best of 5 match on LAN to decide who is the University champion.
There are of course plenty of prizes with all 9 regional representatives taking home some swag regardless of their finish. The whole event is sponsored by Razer, with the winners taking home some Razer gear as well as a Pulsefire Ezreal statue.
