Urbanus.
 
The PBRPRPSCLCS will take place at a variety of venues throughout the city every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday beginning on April 14th.  The season will culminate in the PBR RPS City League Championship Invitational on June 7th, with the City League Champion taking home the prestigious title, trophy and a $1,000 prize.  In addition, over $500 worth of prizes will be awarded to the champions of nightly events as well as end-of-season prizes to reward the strongest players in a variety of categories throughout the regular season.

Player points for the league will be awarded depending upon how each competitor fares in nightly competitions. Players are awarded 1 point simply for participation, with points increasing for each victory on the night.  The top 64 competitors in terms of points scored at the end of the season will be invited to compete for the PBRPRPSCLCS Championship title.  In addition to their City League points, winners of the nightly tournaments will receive a gift certificate to the venue hosting the event along with the envy of all of their friends, family and fellow competitors.
