    Updated on Oct. 13, 2021 - Sega's finale to its first Challenge Cup concluded on October 10, 2022. You can watched the Finals for U19 and FREE Challenge Cup on Youtube. While the qualifiers and playoffs were done online, the 2 U19 and 16 FREE finalists competed in an offline environment with no audience (due to the Covid-19 pandemic). The finals is a single elimination, first to win two games tournament. The online qualifiers and playoffs before the finals were double elimination. For both the U19 and FREE Challenge Cups, the top 2 finishers received a trophy. In addition, the winner of each event received a special "Star Player" title for use in-game.
