Blizzard today confirmed that the Heroes of the Dorm eSport tournament is going to be a Facebook Live exclusive. The tournament is going to be broadcast live on Facebook’s platform. Heroes of the Dorm is based on Blizzard’s popular Heroes of the Storm game. It’s a unique tournament in which college teams from the United States and Canada compete for a chance to win free tuition at their university.

Blizzard previously had a deal with ESPN which is why the eSport tournament was broadcast on the sports network for the past two years. The tournament was also live streamed on Twitch and YouTube last year. Not anymore, though.

Every single match of the Heroes of the Dorm 2017 eSport tournament will be live streamed exclusively via the game’s Facebook page. Blizzard says that hosting the live stream on Facebook is going to enhance every match since it will easily be able to create shareable clips and interact closely with fans.

The first Heroes of the Dorm tournament was won by UC Berkeley’s team and the Arizona State University’s team won last year. More information about the tournament including player profiles can be accessed on the game’s website.

The tournament gives college students a great opportunity to put their gaming skills to good use and walk away with free tuition. Eligible college gamers can sign up for the tournament starting today. The tournament will wrap up by this spring.
