Campus Legends, the premier student esports event organised by Singapore’s Cybersports & Online Gaming Association (SCOGA), is pressing continue on its run and returns for a fourth season after starting out in 2019. This follows last year’s successful run, which saw over 681,000 viewers tune in to its broadcasts and live streams.
Season 4 is set to begin on 20 May, with students from 16 of Singapore’s institutes of higher learning competing for the chance to win S$25,000 worth of prizes this year. While old favourite Mobile Legends Bang Bang (MLBB) is once again headlining the mobile category, this season features two new games for the competition — and this year’s event is the first time it will have three titles to compete in.
The first is the massively popular title Valorant. The fast-paced first-person hero shooter makes its debut in Campus Legends and will be the game for competitors within the PC category to showcase their skills. Completing the trio is Zwift, a unique massively multiplayer game based on online cycling. The game, which is an individual competition, comes by way of SCOGA’s partnership with the Singapore Cycling Federation (SCF) and represents a different and more physical way for people to compete compared to other esports competitions.
Campus Legends Season 4 begins with individual school qualifying rounds before being followed by the group stages, taking place from June to July. Finally, the event caps off with the Grand Finals, from 6 to 7 August. This season is made more special since it sees the return of physical events, after the last two years were online-only. From the semi-finals onwards, visitors can see the action live for Valorant and MLBB while Zwift will culminate in a pulsating in-person final.
SCOGA and PVP Esports are also partnering up to present this season’s main prize, the SCOGA X PVP Esports Scholarship Fund. The scholarship fund is worth $12,000 and will be split into S$6,000 halves, with one being in cash and the other going into the winners’ Post-Secondary Education Account (PSEA). Other rewards include over $13,000 worth of prizes from AOC Gaming Monitors, who come onboard as Campus Legends’ official monitor partner.
Students interested in flying their institution’s flag can look to the official website for Campus Legends to see more details on entering and representing their school.
