GREENVILLE, S.C. — Conference Carolinas has uniquely collaborated with its member institutions that sponsor Esports to announce the inaugural Conference Carolinas Esports Madden Championship that will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020.

“We are really excited to announce this publicly,” Commissioner Chris Colvin said. “We have been working with our member institutions that sponsor Esports over the last few months to come up with an Esports Championship that would be beneficial to all at this point in time. It was determined that holding a Madden Championship would be a great first step of working with our Esports programs. We look forward to this year’s Madden Championship in addition to continuing to see how we can benefit all of our member institutions sponsoring Esports in the future.”

The six Conference Carolinas member institutions participating in the Madden Championship are Barton, Belmont Abbey, Chowan, Erskine, King and Lees-McRae.

The 2020 Conference Carolinas Madden Championship will begin with each Esports member institution holding preliminary rounds on their campus by Oct. 24, 2020 with the two finalists from each institution advancing to the Championship Finals on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020.

The Championship Finals will be seeded with the champions from each institutional opening round facing off against the second-place finisher from another institution in the first round. A drawing with the head coaches will be held the week of the Championship Finals to determine which schools will face off against each other in the first rounds of the Championship Finals.

The first two rounds of the Championship Finals will be single elimination and played concurrently. The semifinals will be played concurrently, but they will be the best of three games.
