ASTRO Gaming Rainbow Six Siege Series announced by ACGL

Thanks to a continued partnership between ASTRO Gaming and South African tournament organizer African Cyber Gaming League (ACGL), we’ve got some great Cash Cups for February and March, and the ASTRO Gaming Valorant Series to enjoy. While that’s a lot to get excited about already, ACGL and ASTRO Gaming have even more for local gamers, as they’ve announced the ASTRO Gaming Rainbow Six Siege Series.

Starting next week with the group stage, the ASTRO Gaming Rainbow Six Siege Series features two events really, one for PC and one for PlayStation. As always, registration is completely free. You can register your team right now for the PC event or for the PlayStation event.

Teams will first compete in a group phase, and will then be seeded into the Main Bracket or the Shield Bracket. The Main Bracket will feature the top teams from the group phase, while the Shield Bracket will feature all the other teams.
