How old do you have to be to compete in HCS?

OP Weebesis

I am 17 years old and i play at a semi pro level on halo 5 & halo: mcc, i want to get into to playing pro esports but i don't know if you have to be 18+ like in call of duty or 15+ like in rocket league...
Hey OP, I don't recall seeing any updates after this so I believe this is the most recent age limits for HCS:

AGE LIMIT UPDATES

For some time now we have received questions regarding age limit for official HCS competition including the Halo World Championship. After working closely with our partners at ESL, as well as legal teams, I’m pleased to share the updated age limits, effective immediately:
  • North America -­ 13 years of age
  • Latin America ­- 18 years of age
  • Australia -­ 15 years of age
  • New Zealand -­ 13 years of age
  • Europe - 16 years of age
now I know that if I can play or not and I will play later then
The rules may change / be updated for Halo Infinite, the ages above were published 3 years ago for Halo 5. Keep a check on any HCS announcements on the lead up to launch for more details
