Blizzard and collegiate esports tournament organizers Tespa are hosting a Copa Lúcioball event this summer.

The three-on-three competitive Lúcioball tournament will be held online from Aug. 11 to 12. The Tespa Arcade: Summer Lúcioball tournament is open to all college students across North America. Overwatch players have the chance to earn their share of $900 in Blizzard prizing, $300 of which will go to the winning team.

Participants will play in a five-round swiss-style tournament. Teams with a 3-2 or higher record will move on to the double-elimination bracket, where a winner will be determined.

Registration for the Copa Lúcioball tournament is open now on the Tespa website. A full schedule of events is available online.

Lúcioball is returning as part of the Overwatch Summer Games event starting on Aug. 9. It’s the third year for the summer-themed event, but the second in which a competitive iteration of Lúcioball is available. Alongside the Summer Games event this year, a new Lúcioball map will debut, taking players to Busan, South Korea.

Not a college student? You’ll just want to stick to Copa Lúcioball on the competitive ladder. Blizzard hasn’t explicitly confirmed a new Copa Lúcioball season during the Summer Games event, but fans would likely riot if the developer didn’t start one up. For many, Lúcioball’s return is a main draw for the seasonal Overwatch event. For others, it’s the seriously cool new skins that are likely to debut during the event.
