The Next Level of esports
for Schools in Central Maryland/DC
The NLG Cup is Next Level Gaming’s central Maryland and Washington DC schools-only competition series for various esports games. We support esports and schools through fundraisers and other Next Level Gaming events.
Through fundraisers or other means, competitions are hosted online or at the school with our mobile game theaters, depending on which games we are competing in. There is no limit to how many times a school can enter a single or multiple competitions. Winning individuals and teams represent their school while competing in county competitions.
Top players from each school in a county will compete online or at a designated location to find the best players and teams in the county. Depending on the game and number of entrants, up to the top 5 individuals or teams from each county will compete at the next level.
The NLG Cup Championships for will be held once per year for each esports game in the series. The champs will win their prizes and, assuming they are still in the same school the following year, will automatically be entered to compete the following year.
Prizing is based on number of entrants in a given region. The more entrants, the larger the payout. Each region will win cash prizes. If even two people sign up in any region, someone wins!
