SMITE Challenger Cup

The SMITE Challengers Cup will be a seven week, open tournament where any team, excluding the teams in the Pro League, has the opportunity to sign up and compete. North American teams will play on Saturday while European teams will play on Sundays. Each week is a single elimination tournament with no limit to the amount of signups. Here, teams will compete for seeding points and a prize pool of $1,000 every week.

From there, only the top two teams from the Wildcards will advance to the Regional Championship LAN in November. North American teams will be invited to Atlanta, Georgia and European teams will be invited to Cologne, Germany.

Only the top two teams from each regions Regional Championship LAN will advance to the biggest event in SMITE’s history: The SMITE World Championships.
