The ESL Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League began on March 4th in front of a phenomenal crowd at the Intel Extreme Masters World Championship in Katowice, Poland and is now only a few weeks away from the Season 1 Finals! Over the past five weeks, teams across Europe and North America have been battling it out for a chance to be the first ever Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege champion.
The action has been intense so far, with four explosive broadcasts of Rainbow Six every week. The Xbox One matches from both Europe and North America are live on Mondays, and the PC matches from both regions are on Thursdays, so be sure to tune in. Here’s a recap of the most recent matches on both platforms and both regions!
Play Day 5 for the Xbox One Rainbow Six Pro League teams was Monday, April 4th, and started off in Europe with Supremacy R6S taking the first match 2 – 0 against Team anXel.
