The XP Esports Rainbow Six Women’s League is coming back for another two seasons, with $3,000 on the line for the best players in Australia and New Zealand.
After a successful first season, the Rainbow Six Women’s League is making a comeback, with developers Ubisoft and tournament organiser XP Esports making a commitment to the scene for another two seasons.
The XP Esports Rainbow Six Women’s League Season 2 kicks off on July 30, and will run for eight weeks. The finals will take place on September 17. There will be a third season later in the year, or early in 2021.
Supporting the grassroots level of @Rainbow6ANZ esports is vital in ensuring the health of our scene's future. I'm really proud to be continuing our partnership with the team at @XPEsportsAus for the remainder of 2020.— MΛGIC (@Magic_Casts) June 12, 2020

The competition will be “open to all women in Australia and New Zealand who have a passion for video game culture and esports.”
The first season of the Women’s League took place earlier in 2020, featuring players from not only Rainbow Six, but CS:GO and other backgrounds. Vertex Esports took home the crown, and $1,500 to boot.

The Season 2 and 3 prize pool isn’t changing, with $3,000 being split between the top three teams at the end of the league.
The XP Esports Women’s League for Rainbow Six follows in the footsteps of other female-only competitions across other titles like CS:GO.
XP Esports is also extending their partnership with Ubisoft Australia to expand into high schools. Starting on July 30, students aged 16 or above will be able to compete in a new league, providing yet another new pathway into esports.
You can catch the Rainbow Six Women’s League action on the XP Esports Twitch channel every Thursday starting on August 2.
