Nintendo UK has today announced its Splatoon 2 UK Championship, with a number of qualification events taking place over the coming weeks. Successful teams will participate in a live-streamed grand final at EGX 2017 towards the end of September, which will see all eight qualifying teams battle it out for the ultimate UK crown.

Thanks to Nintendo UK, Nintendo Life will be entering a very special team into the grand final event, made up of two NL staff members, including our very own YouTube host Alex Olney, and two NL readers. That's where you come in.

We're on the hunt for a pair of Splatoon 2 players that can join us and help bring home the championship to Nintendo Life.

To be in with a chance you’ll need to team up with a friend and play in League Battle during the 19:00-21:00 slot on Wednesday 30th August as a pair and, after the battle, share a screenshot of your record score with us on Twitter, mentioning @NintendoLife and using the hashtag #UKSplatChamps, showing your pair’s highest league power. If Twitter's not really your thing, you can alternatively just email us at [email protected]

The pair with the highest league power will make the team and represent Nintendo Life alongside our staff at EGX! Also, the winning pair will of course get free entry to EGX along with travel expenses and some other goodies.

Whilst we'll be playing for the glory, each team member of the grand final winning team will also receive a trophy, a Splatoon 2 fan-bundle full of Splatoon merchandise, and an exclusive champion’s jersey to commemorate their achievement.

So, UK Splatoon 2 players, we need you!
