The Halo Championship Series Kick Off Major Tournament is taking place at the Raleigh Convention Center, December 17-19! Starting prize pool is $250,000! Tickets on sale now. 

The Halo community will be united under one roof, and this time with an entirely new Halo game to play and watch - Halo Infinite. In tried-and-true Halo esports fashion, the HCS Kickoff Major will feature an open bracket, seating for spectators, as well as full main stage and featured stations for pool play and the championship bracket. To ensure a world class experience onsite and for viewers at home, Esports Engine will be assisting with operating the event.
