The SPL Season 2 2015 Challenger Cup is an official Hi-Rez sanctioned Smite tournament. This league has both a North American and European roster.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Summer Challenger Cup is an 8-week tournament series for any non-SPL team to join. Each week, teams will compete for points as well as gems. On Week 6 of the Challenger Cup, the top 8 teams will advance into a Round Robin stage at which each team will play each other twice. By the end of week 7, only the 4 teams will advance to the Finals.

The finals is a single elimination tournament bracket. Only the top 2 teams in this tournament bracket will advance into the SPL Fall Qualifiers, which will be the last chance for any non-SPL team to try and qualifier for the SMITE World Championship. Whether a new team or one that didn’t quite make it into the SPL Summer Split, the Challenger Cup welcomes all to compete!
