It’s time to present the LATAM League 2021! In 2020, the tournament had the addition of two brand-new divisions: Mexico and Latin America South. Together with Brazil Division – the first R6S National Division released, debuted in 2017 – the triad of tournaments compose the Latin American Pro League Division of Rainbow Six Siege. Although, with the round robin system and Best-of-two format, the region realized it required improvement on its format.

In addition, each division will have its respective Challenger and Open League, continuing the work of training new talents across the whole region and serving as the gateway to the elite of Siege in Latin America.
At the end of each stage, the best teams from each region advance to the LATAM League Stage Finals, a tournament that will give the top 4 teams the chance to win the title of one of the most prestigious Rainbow Six Siege tournaments in the world, the Majors.
