Campus Legends is a long-running esports tournament in Singapore that takes place once a year and features competitions in several esports titles every year. The event’s main focus is on education and helping students compete in a professional tournament at a national level. According to a release, since its inception in 2019, Campus Legends has helped kickstart careers for players, casters and students who want to focus on organising events.

The tournament will have several stages. Early June is reserved for open school qualifiers, which will then be followed by group stages and playoffs in June and July. The grand finals are set to take place in August.

The 2024 edition will be supported by Singapore’s National Council Against Drug Use under the tagline ‘Towards a drug-free Singapore’. The partnership will leverage the tournament’s reach to teach young people about the benefits of a drug-free lifestyle. In addition, a conference focused on parents will be held alongside the finals of the tournament, aimed to inform parents about gaming and esports while also educating them on drug abuse.

The tournament is also supported by major international and national brands such as AOC, Acer Predator, MyRepublic and SCAPE.

Dennis Ooi, President of SCOGA, commented on the event: “The success of Campus Legends as it enters its 6th season will not be possible without the unwavering support of the gaming community and our esteemed partners.

“Campus Legends is not just about gaming, it’s about empowering youths and preparing them for life’s challenges. Students learn invaluable communication, problem-solving, and resilience skills through the camaraderie and teamwork fostered in our tournaments.”
