The Splatoon 2 UK Championship 2018 Grand Final

After months of fierce competition, both the Inkling League and Octo League will conclude at the Splatoon 2 UK Championship 2018 Grand Final! The first thing for people to watch will be the Inkling League Top 4, which will take place from 10:00 on Saturday 24 November. This league focuses on teams of players aged 13 and under, and will offer a splat-tacular display of up-and-coming turf-taking talent.

The Octo League Top 8, beginning shortly after, will be a more intense undertaking. Beginning at 14:00 on Saturday 24 November, this intense double elimination bracket will last for two days, truly putting the best Splatoon 2 players in the UK through their paces and ensuring that the best team will take the trophy and go on to represent the UK in the Splatoon 2 European Championship 2018 – 2019 season final.
