About

College Sport Wellington, in collaboration with Victory Up and Riot Games, are proud to bring you the Wellington Secondary School League (WSSL) - the very first esports Secondary School League in the region, launching with League of Legends.  The WSSL is sanctioned by the national esports body New Zealand Esports Federation (NZeSF).

After running a successful pilot competition in term 2, the term 3 will look to amp things up, with the possibility of having live venues similar to what you see on TV.  So grab your school mates and get involved.

Esport FAQs

League of Legends is a co-operative five-a-side team game, in which students play against another team. Like traditional team sports like football, netball and rugby, League of Legends is an invasive game that ebbs and flows with the state of play.

The WSSL gives students a chance to represent their school, while developing skills such as teamwork, cooperation, and problem solving, all while having fun in a competitive environment.
