    SUNY Chancellor Esports Challenge powered by Extreme Networks
    Starting April 27

    SUNY Erie is looking for students with a love and talent for esports to participate in the first ever SUNY Chancellor Esports Challenge powered by Extreme Networks. Both Chancellor Johnson and Extreme Networks has committed $10,000 each with a total of $20,000 in prizes available to win. Prize money will be donated to schools’ Student Emergency Fund. Other prizes will be available, as well.

    The tournament will be played in three different games: Rocket League (3v3), Fortnite (2v2) and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (1v1). Students may participate in more than one game/be a part of more than one team. SUNY Erie will have two teams per game.

    The tournament consists of two stages. The Round Robin Group Stage will be played from April 27-May 1. Performance in this stage determines seeding for stage 2, the Elimination Bracket. Elimination Bracket is single loss elimination. Stage 2 will be played from May 4-May 15.
