What is College Rivals?

College Rivals is a talent hunt initiative by Ampverse DMI that gives college students a chance to come into the limelight and show off their skills. The winner also gets a chance to be scouted into a professional esports organization.

Season 1 for College Rivals featured six titles BGMI, FIFA 23, Road to Valor, Valorant, Tekken 7 and Counter Strike 2 and saw over 92,000 participants across all fronts. The grand finals saw 26 participants across all six games and over 5,000 attendees.

College Rivals also took an entirely new approach to hosting these events. A van visited each city one by one while also bringing a host of activities like music shows and performances to better connect with the youth across the nation.

The new season will only see three games across the board, however, this means that the prize pool and stakes for each of them will be much higher. Furthermore, people also got to meet some of the biggest gaming personalities in India, including ScoutOP, Mortal, Payal Gaming and many more and the same is expected for this season too.
