Ubisoft's FAM Series Kicks Off Tomorrow In Toronto
If you’re interested in being part of esports, one of the fastest growing industries in the world, the Ubisoft FAM Series is a great place to start. Unfortunately for Albertans we’ll have to travel a bit if we want to take part – the closest event is going to be hosted by SKL Esports out of Regina.
Maybe it’s time Alberta kicks it up a notch and has our own major esports league? Do we really want to let some Saskatchewan organization lay claim to being “Western Canada’s premiere competitive Esports League” forever?
Ubisoft’s FAM Series: Rainbow Six Community Events Across Canada
Esports has grown to become an integral part of the video game industry. It is one of the fastest growing industries globally, and esports is on the rise in Canada. Newzoo reports that the year 2019 marks a major milestone for the global esports market, which will for the first time exceed the billion-dollar revenue mark (up 26.7% from 2018) and that the global esports audience will reach 453.8 million viewers (up 15% from 2018). Esports has gone mainstream!
In order to continue to build esports in Canada and help more Canadians perform at higher competitive levels, Ubisoft is proud to present the FAM Series, Rainbow Six Siege community events throughout the country, designed to help celebrate gamers’ passion by rewarding them with unique experiences.
Key gaming and esports locations in Canada are hosting Rainbow Six Siege events or tournaments this summer, including The Gaming Stadium (Vancouver), SKL Esports (Regina), Waves Gaming (Toronto), Inside the Game (Toronto) and Esports Central (Montreal).
In addition, CNE Gaming Garage, a celebration of all things gaming hosted in Toronto, will kick off this year’s edition with a Rainbow Six tournament on August 16 on the main stage.
The Rainbow Six Canada Nationals are also ongoing this summer, giving the country’s best Rainbow Six Siege players a chance to showcase their skills and take their first steps towards playing at the top tier level! The finalists will face off at the Toronto Grand Finals at EGLX on October 19 for a $15,000 prize pool.
