Updates and Announcements On Our Fall 2022 High School Season.

Jun 30, 2022


As promised, here is our second update for the Fall 2022 season.

Lock in Early Bird Pricing Now, Plan Your Teams Later

Planning to compete this fall, but don’t know your roster(s) yet? No problem! Log in to your account and enroll at least one team (minimum 4-seat purchase required) by 7/31 to secure your early bird discount (up to 20% off). You’ll then have the flexibility to add more teams & players at the early bird rate even after 7/31.

Reminders will be sent to finalize rosters and submit payment prior to the Fall enrollment deadline (9/16). Reach out to your Customer Success Representative at to learn more.

If you want to make sure you are a part of future conversations and stay up to date on everything PlayVS be sure to:

New Updates 

NBA 2K Special Pricing

We are thrilled to kick off our inaugural PlayVS official NBA 2K season this Fall and wanted to extend an exclusive benefit for enrolling early! If you enroll at least one NBA 2K team and complete this purchase form by July 31, 2022, you will secure a $42 discounted price (30% off of MSRP!) for the next iteration of NBA 2K for PS4, when you compete through PlayVS. The number of copies available at this special price will be limited and will be shipped according to the general release date.


We had received a lot of feedback regarding continuing to operate Splatoon™ 2 vs Splatoon™ 3 this fall season, given the announcement of Splatoon™ 3 earlier this summer. While we had previously communicated Splatoon™ 2, we discussed this with our partners at Nintendo and are excited to announce we will be moving our Splatoon™ leagues to Splatoon™ 3 this Fall season to align with the broader ecosystem! In partnership with Nintendo, we will be providing every enrolled Splatoon™ 3 team with four Splatoon™ 3 game codes (valued at $240 per team) upon release on September 9th. Due to the Splatoon™ 3 release date, Splatoon™ 3 leagues will start preseason the week of September 12th, with the regular season kicking off the week of September 26th.

Hearthstone Card Unlock and Early Access

Beginning this Fall, teams that enroll in PlayVS Hearthstone leagues will gain access to accounts preloaded with card packs! Schools that enroll before July 11th will be eligible to receive early access to unlocked accounts, while supplies last! General release of the unlocked accounts will be August 1st, 2022.

Each account will be loaded with 300 classic card packs, and 300 card packs from each of the following expansions: Madness at Darkmoon Faire, Scholomance Academy, Forged in the Barrens, United in Stormwind, Fractured in Alterac Valley, Murder at Castle Nathria. Teams looking to get the most out of the unlocked accounts will need to dedicate time to complete the tutorial, level up desired classes, and manually open card packs prior to start of the regular season.

This season we have added even more ways to give back - both to your program and the new school(s) that you help enroll. 

As a verified PlayVS coach, refer a new coach at a school that has never competed with PlayVS and we'll credit $500 to your PlayVS school account AND credit $500 to the referred coach's PlayVS school account if the referred coach enrolls a team in the Fall 2022 season by the registration deadline. Additionally, refer an athletic/activities director from your school district and PlayVS will donate $2,000 to your school if at least half of the schools in the district enroll at least one team in the Fall 2022 OR Spring 2023 seasons.
