Unified Esports Association 3/12/2021

 

 

 

The final four teams from the Unified Grand Prix returned on March 1st-3rd to battle for a piece of the $20,000 prize pool.

 

While all four teams secured their position in the 2021 LCS Proving Grounds powered by Verizon by making it to this point in the bracket, the action never let up in the final matches as teams were eager to prove themselves as top rising talent in the North American amateur League of Legends scene.

 

 

 

Esports fans showed their support on social media and by tuning in to the matches as they streamed live on the official LCS Academy channel. Over the 7 days of the event, Twitter impressions quickly soared over 1,000,000 as organizations, players, casting talent and fans alike shared predictions and game highlights. Matches have already reached over 400,000 views on Twitch alone, with peak live viewership across streams reaching 15,000 in the Finals as fans were eager to see who would win it all.

 

Congratulations to the 2021 Unified Grand Prix winners:
