GAMING UNITES US ALL

Living through a pandemic can be an isolating time, especially for teenagers. With the uncertainty of high school sports this fall, Chicago Gaming United (CGU) is excited to announce that they will host their first ever high school NBA2K tournament. The tournament will be open to all high schools in Chicago and will feature a PS4 and Xbox division. The Gaming Stadium (TGS), a publicly traded esports tournament organizer, will partner with us to put on the tournament.

 

Our goal is to utilize the the multi-school program to unite students, families and the city. We will name a beneficiary to receive a portion of the sponsorship proceeds from the event and will also raise money to provide scholarship dollars to each of the tournament winners.

 

Chicago Gaming United plans to have multiple tournaments throughout the year featuring other games such as Madden, FIFA and other popular titles. Our goal is for the event to eventually expand to other cities across the country and then create a national tournament.

ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT

An online NBA2k tournament open to all high schools in Chicago. The tournament will feature A PS4 and Xbox Division with the winners receiving a monetary scholarship to go towards post secondary costs. 
 
The tournament will be played in three phases and will be single elimination throughout. All of the phases will be played online. 

Phase 1 – Intra School - November 7 & 8 
Each school will host their own single elimination tournament. There will be one winner for each division from each school.
 
Phase 2 – School vs School - November 14 & 15
The winners from Phase 1 will take each other on in a single elimination format.   


Phase 3 – Top Four - NOVEMBER 21 & 22
This phase will have the top four or eight in each console division. This entire phase will be facilitated and live streamed by TGS with each event being played back to back. (if this phase can be done safely we will hold a physical event)
