Welcome to the second team cup from UKUHL: the UK University Hearthstone League!

A spiritual successor to NSE’s previous Hearthstone Team League, the event is for teams of 2-3 players cooperatively playing via one account (think backseating!). We will be doing an online Swiss Qualifier on 26th February, and then the top 8 teams will progress to an In Person Finals hosted at Warwick Esports Centre on 5th March!

All proceedings will be coordinated via Battlefy, and all communications will be distributed via our Discord.
