Rainbow Six Siege UK and Ireland Nationals to make a return in 2023
The tournament will be a way to earn a spot in the Northern Premier League.
While the European Rainbow Six: Siege league is the top continental tournament for the Ubisoft tactical shooter, there are various smaller, regional tournaments and leagues that feed into it, and even smaller tournaments that feed into those. For the UK and the Nordics, our regional tournament is the Northern Premier League (NPL), and for the UK and Ireland, our national tournament that feeds into the NPL is the UK Ireland Nationals (UKIN).
On the topic of the latter, Ubisoft has announced that UKIN will be back in 2023, and therefore will be offering teams a way to earn a spot in the NPL. Set to kick-off in January and February after the open qualifiers in December 2022, we're told that Ubisoft UK has teamed up with various grassroots tournament organisers to ensure that the event is well supported across the country.
As for the actual tournament, this will last for four weeks, with each week having two playdays, all before the playoffs take place between February 4 and 5. The winner at the playoffs will get a relegation spot in the next NPL playoffs, with the top four teams of the UKIN playoffs getting shares of a £2500 prize pool.
