We are happy to announce the joined pointing system that connects all of the tournament operators to the #ElisaChampionsCircuit!

GRID Integrity Services, as the official data partner, will be coordinating the points across enrolled competitions. These partnering tournaments include Funspark Ulti, HSH Series, and Elisa Invitationals. A new addition to the crew will be Pinnacle, who has recently been enrolled in the circuit with their Pinnacle Cups across 2021.

The points will go towards qualification to the 2022’s Elisa Champion of Champions event. At the close of all the marked competitions, the top six teams will gain automatic qualification to Elisa Champion of Champions. Previous competitions by all enrolled partners, including Elisa Invitational Spring 2021, Snow Sweet Snow 1-3, Spring Sweet Spring Cup 1, The Pinnacle Cup 2021, and the Funspark Ulti 2021 Europe Regional Series, will be included in the rankings.

The opportunity to partner with Elisa across their landmark Tournament Circuit the Champion of Champions and combine both our data analysis with our integrity team’s work is the perfect fit.

We look forward to all the action that is set to unfold across the 2021/22 season, and have worked towards conceptualizing a points system with Elisa that rewards all of the participating teams for their hard work and grind through the lower stages of the competing cups, as well as those good enough to win each of the competitions!” Tom Warburton, COO of GRID Esports.
