The start of our first second division in the Northern Rainbow Six Siege esports circuit, the Nordic Championship, is drawing closer and to make the upcoming season clearer for both players and fans we've compiled all the necenssary information for you to be able to go back to whenever needed.

With the qualifiers for the Nordic Championship out of the way we can finally confirm the eight (8) teams that will be fighting for glory in the winter cold that is the Nordics. Not only do we have ex-RIDDLE Esports that played in the past season of the Northern Premier League, but we also have The Crew that are walking in as pre-qualified to the NC since the NPL qualifiers.

From our partners in Finland, Finnish Esports League, we have the top teams of their sixth and seventh seasons of their local league; Nordic Project and 50 Hirvis. The final four spots was snatched by teams participating in the open qualifiers where Cracked Kids and Hackapells E-Athletic Academy waved the winning flags. In the second qualifier Mending and Team Invictum claimed the final NC spots making us ready to rumble.


This season of the Nordic Championship was originally set to start on November 23rd, 2022. But with the Six Major taking place in Jönköping, Sweden, and us knowing that a lot of our players are not only players – but also fans, we didn’t want to stop any of you from enjoying and even traveling to Sweden for the Major. Therefore, we’ve decided to move the schedule and we will instead be starting on November 30th, 2022, with the first playday of the season. The full schedule can be seen below.

Roster lock

As we've moved the start of the season we will also be letting the qualified teams have some extra time to sort their teams out. This is why we request all teams to lock in their rosters on the latest on November 17th. The team captain should submit the full roster containing of a minimum of 3 Nordic players in the starting lineup, and potential staff and substitutes, before 15:00 CET on November 17th. If a team confirms their roster before the requested time, their roster will be locked and no changes are allowed to be made afterwards. If a team miss the deadline, the roster they last played with in the connected competitions (NPL, Nordic Championship qualifiers and Finnish Esports League) will be locked as the starting roster with no add-ons or changes allowed.

At least three players from the last played roster will have to keep their spot in the team going into the NC. This means that you are only allowed to switch up to two starting players from your last apparence in the qualifying rounds if an exception hasn't been granted by Ubisoft.

Information regarding how to submit your set roster will be shared in the announcement channel on the NPL Circuit Discord, please follow the guidelines shared there. The NPL server is different from the open qualifier server. If you qualified through the open qualifiers your team will be directly invited to the new server. If you qualified through the Finnish Esports League, you will be invited once FEL has submitted your information.


Prize pool

Another frequently asked question has been the prize pool for the upcoming season and the answer to this is 2,500 Euros. As we’ve combined the Nordic and UK Ireland Nationals into the Northern Premier League Circuit, we will be mirroring the prize pool in both of our second divisions (NC and UKIN) which means that the same amount of prize money will be up for grabs in both tournaments, including how it’s divided between the teams.


1st place team:

1250 Euros

2nd place team:

750 Euros

3rd place team:

250 Euros

4th place team:

250 Euros


We can't announce the talent roster yet, but we can promise you a lineup with both well-known and new faces. We highly recommend fans to follow the Nordic esports channels on Twitter and Instagram for future updates. We can, however, confirm that fans will be able to see the qualified teams and players go from zero to hero on the official Northern Premier League Twitch channel.
