Nintendo has been actively fostering the Splatoon 2 competitive community ever since the game launched. Their latest effort went live today: a Splatoon 2 community site that allows players to create teams, look for squadmates and take part in tournaments. This is a collaboration with Toornament, a dedicated eSport organization platform. 

At the moment, this seems to be a service exclusively for European players, as the only tournament listed at the moment is the “Splatoon 2 EU Community Cup #1” on January 13th; also, the team finding service only offers help for players living in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.
