The tournament was attended by 22 teams from 20 schools and universities of the USA and Canada.

"As universities continue to grow their esports programs at the varsity, non-varsity and club levels, we’re proud to be providing a platform for national exposure and recognition of some of the most talented players in the collegiate space," said John Lasker, vice president of Digital Media Programming for ESPN.
