Hello everyone!

The Path is a series of affiliated tournaments in local regions across Canada. Each of these affiliated tournaments will receive an additional pot bonus from the Path to Glory tournament that will cover the airfare for the highest ranking player from that region to attend Path to Glory.

The Path series will bring together the very best from the respective regions to attend, compete and represent Canadian talent at the highest level. Dates for The Path series can be found below with more details for unannounced events to come in the future. Please come visit this post at a later time to see if things have been updated.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if an out of region player comes and wins the event? Do they get their flights covered?

No, only players from within the region will get the bonus airfare costs covered. The highest ranking player from that region at the affiliated tournament will collect the bonus airfare!

What happens if I live really close to Regina and don't want to fly?

Reach out to SKL ([email protected]) or a tournament organizer and we will find an alternative that will still get you to the tournament, but not on your own cost.

Does this include hotels?

No, this does not currently cover the costs of hotels.

What if I miss the Path event in my city? Can I go to another region and get the bonus?

No, unfortunately the airfare bonus prizing is locked to the region and will not be available to out of region players.

When will the details of the other events be announced?

We are working alongside TOs from those particular regions to find events and timelines that work for them. We do not want to announce details before the local TOs have had a chance to announce the event themselves. Keep an eye on our social media for details about these events in the future.

How did you choose which cities would be a part of The Path Series?

As this is a lead up to a event at the Grey Cup Festival, we chose cities that host CFL teams! As this is the largest annual sporting event in Canada, we wanted to choose some of the largest sporting centres as well.

SKL partners with the 2022 Grey Cup Festival!

What

Path to Glory, a $50,000 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament.

When

November 18-19th, 2022

Where

Brandt Center located in Regina, Saskatchewan.

SKL Esports has partnered with the 2022 Grey Cup Festival to bring you Path to Glory, the largest prize pool ever for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in Canada!

Path to Glory will be held on November 18th and 19th at the Brandt Center, right in the middle of the action at the Grey Cup Festival. The event will feature a $50,000 prize pool, making this one of the largest Smash tournaments in Canadian history.

This tournament is available to all players who think they have what it takes to climb the Path to Glory!

In addition to this, we will be sponsoring several regional based events. Through these events, we will find a champion from each region to attend the main event and represent their region on the Path to Glory. The first place player from each regional event will have their airfare covered to be able to attend Path to Glory, in addition to the regular prizing they would receive for the event. More details regarding these regional based events will be coming soon.

As this event is happening on Grey Cup weekend, we highly recommend pre-registration and reserving hotel accommodations as soon as possible to ensure your spot at Path to Glory. With this in mind, we have also chosen to cap the event at 256 entrants, due to accommodation limitations in the city of Regina during this weekend.

We are beyond excited to be able to bring this event to SKL’s home province of Saskatchewan, with the help of the Grey Cup Festival! Stay tuned for more info as we approach the Grey Cup Festival and Path to Glory!
