Today we are thrilled to announce a new addition to our rotation of tournaments - the ACGL Leagues. This is one for the participants. We want you to feel like you are part of something unique, challenging, rewarding and fun. With the ACGL Leagues we aim to put the spotlight on the player in a bigger way than ever before.

The ACGL Leagues launch for three titles initially: Modern Warfare on console, COD Mobile and Rainbow Six Siege on PlayStation 4. These three titles and communities have been some of our biggest (and most outspoken) supporters over the last few years, and we felt it was only right to kick things off with them. Additional titles will be added in the future, and we can only recommend that participating in our ongoing cups will help us gauge interest in expanding titles in our Leagues.

The existing weekly cups for the League titles will continue, offering newcomers a chance to still dip their toe in the competitive scene, while more established teams can continue to hone their skills outside of League matches.

SEASON ONE

Cash prizes will be on the line. These will be on a sliding scale based on entry numbers, which are detailed below. Leagues have been built around the model of R100 per person for a season. R500 will be the cost of entry for a team per season, with an allowance of up to two substitutes.

In Season One, the competition will start with a group phase featuring all registered teams. The top 16 teams will head into the Premier Knockout Cup. On the line for the top eight teams is a spot in our Premier Division in Season Two. The top four teams in the knockouts will also secure cash.

In addition, all teams that do not qualify for the Premier Knockout Cup will have an opportunity to compete in the Challenger Knockout Cup.

SEASON TWO

Season Two will kick off with the qualifying Premier Division teams competing in a group phase. All other teams can sign up and compete in the Challenger Division. Both roads lead to the Premier Cup playoffs, where qualifying teams from both divisions will compete for the cash on offer.

Teams that do not qualify for the Premier Cup, will get an opportunity to compete in the Challenger Cup, ensuring ongoing opportunities to play and improve in a competitive environment.

Season Two will see teams promoted and relegated in preparation for Season Three.

PRIZE POOL

The cash prize pool will be split between the top four teams at the end of each season's Premier Cup. The sliding scale split below is for teams of five players:

REGISTER TODAY

Registrations are now open for the three Season One leagues. The registrations will close on 11 May, at which point the first season of action will kick off a few days later. Teams competing will need to ensure they have a Team Token on the profile of the captain, which is purchasable on our shop. Once signed up, the token will be deducted from the profile.

    Thanks for replying to my tweet. Awesome idea guys... PC should be allowed to compete. Make the community grow and integrate. Your prize pool will be a lot higher and it would create an awesome competitive environment...

  • ACGL_Dredd30 Apr 15:13

    Awesome. Good luck in the competition.

    As mentioned on Twitter, this is about true competitive integrity. If the numbers prove higher for PC, then there is no reason why we won't consider doing the same league for PC only. There will not be a league for crossplay. Crossplay cups will continue though.
