Esports Arena’s Series E tournament for Halo Infinite has announced their schedule for the first season along with full details for the qualifiers in two weeks’ time.

Series E

In two weeks time, two open qualifiers will take place with the eight winning players each earning a sponsorship by one of the partnered brands -- VIZIO, Nerf, Intel, Razer, Splash, Excedrin -- and joining either the “Esports Arena Red” or “Esports Arena Blue” teams.

The Series E tournament will then see eight weeks of games with $1,000 open tournaments every Monday followed by $500 invite-only exhibition matches every Wednesday.

While both tournaments will include the two sponsored teams, the Monday tournament will also see a maximum of 62 competitors compete with them for the $1,000 prize pool.

The two qualifiers on January 31st and February 7th will be double elimination with a 64-team capacity. Signups are available here.

While a semi-professional tournament, this will help fill out the tournament calendar for February and March with the HCS calendar seeing just four Open Series tournaments scheduled in these months after the Anaheim Regional.
