SCHEDULE & FORMAT

Spring Season 2022:
The R6CC starts January 22nd with 7 weeks of Swiss competition followed by a playoff bracket for the top teams. Teams are being divided into regional conferences based on state/province. This format ensures teams playing against one another are based on skill and record to ensure both competitive games every week. They will earn “Championship” points for their playoff placement, and the top teams will advance to the Unified Collegiate Championship.
Our Conference Playoffs & Finals will be played in a single-elimination style over two weeks starting March 26th. The top teams from each regional conference will be declared the Conference Champions!
The top 12 schools by Championship Points will advance directly to the Unified Championship. The next 16 highest point earners will battle it out in an exciting two week "Wild Card Tournament" to determine the final 4 teams at the Unified Championship. Wild Card matches will take place April 9th and April 16th!
Unified Collegiate Championship:
Introduced earlier this year, the Unified Championship is a new part of the R6CC that will follow the Playoffs from April 23rd — May 8th. We wanted to add a new layer of competition to the program by combining the entire collegiate R6 ecosystem in one awesome event.
Approved community leagues earned "Championship Points" throughout the year, with the top 16 teams advancing to the Unified Championship. In this tournament, the top 4 teams from around the R6 Collegiate scene will compete against one another to be crowned the undisputed champion of Collegiate Rainbow Six.
We are pleased to be working closely with league partners such as CEA, CR6 & ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference).

As mentioned earlier this year the 2022 R6CC season will offer two separate prize pools; one during the Spring Season and one for our Unified Championship for a total prize pool of $35,000!
- For our regular season happening from January to March, we are happy to announce a $15,000 USD prize pool that will be linked to the R6CC finals.
- For our unified championship stage, we will be offering a prize pool of $20,000 USD.
