LPL is proud to bring you the Dota 2 HSL Holiday Cup! This is a one time event held very shortly after secondary school exams in both Australia and New Zealand.
CONGRATULATIONS to our 2018 Holiday Cup Champions: Lynfield College!
It is an opportunity for secondary school students to compete in a competitive esports environment working together as a team and representing their school in a game they love, while competing for a $1,000 prize pool! Teams must be made up of only students from the same school and they must have a supervising teacher in order to participate. Teams will also compete to the standards held by HSL – which promote teamwork, sportsmanship and respect.
Registrations are now CLOSED. You can find the official ruleset here.
