The XP Esports Women’s League Gaming Tournament Is Back This July

Earlier in the year, we looked at Brisbane-based gaming company, XP Esport’s collaboration with Ubisoft to create the XP Esports Women’s League, 2020’s first women-only online gaming competition. And after a successful first season in March, a second edition of the tournament is back this July.

Starting on July 30, the action-packed Rainbow Six Siege tournament will span across a period of two months (High School League) with the finals to be held later in the year in September.

The High School League will consist of groups of high school students aged 16 and above and will help in exposing esports and video games to the largely underrepresented female population. This tournament showcases just how far esports stretches, and demonstrates that it’s not just for the pro players, but that it’s also an industry full of jobs and opportunities for the women who are interested.

Gaming is not just about having fun and competing, it is also about community connection, creativity and education; especially amongst women.

“This season will see the return of the popular XP Women’s League as well as educating and exposing high school students to the exciting and growing industry,”

said Tenielle Lynch

All women in Australia and New Zealand can enter the XP Women’s League competition. Registered players will have the chance of winning AUD$3000, so don’t miss out – register here.
