The champions snagged the $5,000 first prize and the lion's share of the $10,000 prize pool, as well as Razer products including keyboards, mice, and headsets. The teams punched their ticket to the Finals by winning their respective conference tournaments on May 22, 2021.

Produced by the Gaming Community Network (" GCN "), a part of the GameSquare Esports group of companies, an independent media group dedicated gaming and esports, and Van Wagner (" Van Wagner "), the Collegiate Esports Invitational series, billed "Where Conference Champions Are Crowned," is the first major collegiate esports event that brings colleges and universities together across disparate conferences to compete to become a national champion.

The 10 conference tournaments and Championship garnered more than 651,000 live views during which were streamed live on . During the Championship tournament, more than 256,000 unique viewers tuned in. The tournament was also carried by GCN across 85+ gaming and esports centric websites where GCN reaches 65M+ monthly uniques in the U.S.

UMBC defeated Cal State-Fullerton to clinch the title, while Drexel University knocked off Santa Clara University to finish in third place.

"It feels incredible winning the Collegiate Esports Invitational and I am very excited for the future tournaments," said Kiran ‘VenomFN' Yarlagadda, a senior majoring in computer science at UMBC. "I will use the tournament earnings for tuition next semester and anything that remains I am planning on keeping in a savings account. What separated us as a duo from our competitors was our ability to get eliminations early in the game, in addition to being able to end fights quickly through coordinated fighting."

"It feels amazing to win any tournament but winning a tournament this big is not an everyday opportunity and I cannot wait to play more of these in the future," said Arveen ‘Archher' Zarrabi, a sophomore majoring in bioinformatics at UMBC. "Kiran is a fantastic teammate that always kept it positive, and we put enough practice in that we played together really effectively."
