“The team at XP Esports Australia are beyond excited to be continuing our fantastic partnership with Ubisoft once again,” said Brodie Fisher, Director of XP Esports.
“This partnership will see the return of the popular XP Women’s League for Season 2 and 3 as well as developing a brand-new National Rainbow Six High School League starting Term 3. The future looks bright for Rainbow Six esports!”
Tenielle Lynch, XP High School League Co-Ordinator, said “Australian schools strive to provide their young people with a wide range of opportunities and pathways in order to promote growth and ultimately inspire their students. By introducing esports into the classroom teachers have been able to leverage the popularity of video games to further mentor and coach their students through their academics and day to day life. Ubisoft are one of the first few developers in Australia to actively jump on board with the high school esports initiative and with their support schools will be able to provide their students with more opportunities to develop their soft skills, teamwork and sportsmanship.”
