Kicking off in October, the British University Esports Championship has one purpose: to identify the country’s top performing esports universities. For the first time ever, the efforts of every team across numerous games will be aggregated to crown the UK’s first Esports University of the Year. Taking inspiration from BUCS, whose points table is a key consideration for prospective students evaluating their universities, the table will showcase the UK’s top esports universities and provide an ongoing benchmark for developing societies.
Each tournament that contributes points to the overall Championship has been carefully designed to cater to players of every skill level. While specific formats will vary from game to game, the majority of players will have an opportunity to compete in divisional playoffs and vie for glory. While teams competing in each game’s Championship playoff will earn the most points for their university, almost every team will contribute points to their university’s overall score.
Esports University of the Year
At the end of each year, the university with the most points earned across all contributing tournaments will be crowned “Esports University of the Year”. In addition to the prestigious title, which we believe will prove a valuable sponsorship asset for teams and encourage greater administrative support, the winning university will receive a package of 40 society hoodies from the awesome team at Raven with exclusive 2018/19 BUEC champion branding.
Signups are open now the Winter tournaments starting on 14th of October onwards.
