Esports Passes FAQ
Introducing Esports Passes!
Recently, we changed our payment method on GGLeagues to allow more accessibility and affordability for our players. In the past, players needed to pay a fee to register for EACH individual league they wanted to participate in each season. With our new esports season passes, players get access to as many leagues as they would like to participate in and other fun activities by purchasing ONE esports pass for each season. For example, by purchasing a Fall 2021 esports pass players can join leagues for all of the games that we offer in our rec seasons (Fortnite, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and Madden 21)!
Each year we will be running four seasons of recreational seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter), and new season passes will be available for purchase at the start of registration for each season. Once purchased, esports passes will remain active for the entire season. Upcoming season pass dates are listed below:
- Fall: September - December
- Winter: January - March
- Spring: April - June
- Summer: July - September
What else does an esports pass give players access to besides participating in Rec Leagues?
On top of being able to join as many leagues as players would like to, esports pass owners will also gain access to other things each season at no extra cost such as:
- Special one-off esports tournaments
- Requested scrimmages with other players
- Panels and discussions with esports professionals
- GGLeagues resource library on a variety of different topics within esports
- Access to other fun events such as Minecraft servers, one-off game nights, and more!
