What is PlayVS Cup?

The PlayVS Cup is a unique opportunity for the best of the best from around the country to face off in a one of a kind esports tournament. Teams that win state and regional championships in the Fall and Spring seasons are invited to compete in the PlayVS Cup that takes place each year after the end of the Spring season.

Since the start of PlayVS, we have been able to give away over $700,000 in prizing and scholarships to highlight some of the best esports programs in the nation. We look forward to doing both again with this year’s PlayVS Cup.

PlayVS will be contacting State and Regional Champions with information on how to register your teams for the event.

When is the PlayVS Cup?

The PlayVS Cup takes place annually in the Spring. We usually schedule the cup in the weeks following the Spring season, after AP and Finals Testing for most schools has concluded.

Scholarship Prizes

PlayVS Cup Prizing is in the form of scholarships. Prizing can be used at any accredited 4-year, 2-year, technical, or vocational college. Prizes will be distributed per team and coaches will be contacted to verify roster and player eligibility to determine scholarship distribution.
