HCS Invitational at SXSW 2019

  • South by Southwest (map)


HCS is starting 2019 with a 6-team Halo 3 tournament at South by Southwest.




It’s time for some southern charm! On March 15-17 the Halo Championship Series takes center stage at the iconic South by Southwest (SXSW) for the first official HCS event of 2019! The HCS Invitational at SXSW pits the top six teams from UGC’s Halo Classic in a double elimination tournament to prove who is the best of the best.

Partnering with SXSW for this three-day experience, the HCS Invitational will host a total of four tournaments! Things kick-off with the MS Store Tournament 2v2 Throwdown, then we’ll see a 16-player Big Team Battle showcase, a Legendary Rivals match, and finally the 4v4 Halo 3 tournament that awards its winner with the lion’s share of the $100,000 prize pool. It’ll be a show unlike anything we’ve done before, so be sure to get your tickets or tune in!
