TikTok announces Esports Cup with $60K pool

TikTok and esports collide in the first-ever TikTok Cup for college gamers.

Today, North America’s largest collegiate esports league, Collegiate StarLeague (CSL), announced a partnership with leading short-form video platform TikTok to create a brand new esports event, the TikTok Cup. Collegiate players will have the opportunity to compete online across four popular titles, earning their share of the $60K in prize money to support education expenses; that will be split amongst the winners. In addition, by submitting their gaming TikTok videos to the #TikTokCupContest, any college student can nab even more prizes!

In a press release announcing the TikTok Cup, Collegiate StarLeague CEO Wim Stocks said, “Collegiate StarLeague is thrilled to collaborate with the TikTok team to give collegiate gamers the opportunity to create their own content celebrating the intersection of esports, gaming, and the joy of creating TikTok videos.”

Of course, the TikTok Cup wouldn’t be complete without player-submitted TikTok videos.
